Stage Door Series: Shirley Valentine
August 18 @ 7:00 pm$10
Join us once again for a staged reading of Shirley Valentine. Written by Willy Russell, the award-winning script is brought to life by the talented Rosalind Ashford. Catherine Gillet directs this intimate, funny one-woman show for the Stage Door Series.
“The heroine in this one-woman tour-de-force is an ordinary middle class English housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. This hilariously engaging comedy was a smash hit in the West End and Broadway”
Rosalind Ashford recently played Aoife in Outside Mullingar and Kate Mundy in Dancing at Lughnasa for Tryon Little Theater. Rosalind has appeared Off-Broadway (Signature Theatre, Abingdon Theatre), Off-Off-Broadway, at various regional theatres and playhouses, and on film and TV. She currently spends her days in a padded room talking to herself—narrating audiobooks (iTunes, Audible, Amazon) and voicing national and international commercials, videos and industrials.
