Feeling trapped in a world of domesticity, Shirley, a housewife from Liverpool, England, needs a change in her life before she has another conversation with the walls. When her friend Jane invites her on a trip to a Greek island, Shirley jumps at the chance. Upon landing, Jane ditches Shirley for a fling, which means Shirley is left to her own devices. Shirley wanders the island, meets a taverna owner and begins to find the joy in life again.

"I have seen several versions of this play, and of course the Pauline Collin’s film, but this performance easy wins my praise as being the best version. The Liverpudlians have their own mannerisms and dry innate sense of humour, this magnificent performance captured every characteristic perfectly. Simply remembering the script is a massive task, but to capture the emotions, expressions and character, Diana WAS Shirley. A magnificent performance."

"Diana Oliver did justice to the heroine of Willy Russell's one-woman show. A very likeable performer, Diana was believable as the middle-aged, frumpy Liverpudlian housewife who undergoes an amazing personal transformation and learns to love herself. This actress had the audience behind her every word, with the murmurs of assent clear proof of the audience's absorption."
