After our long and unexpected ‘intermission,’ By the Sea Productions is back onstage, opening with the one-woman show, “Shirley Valentine” starring Morro Bay actress, Sharyn Young, directed by Sandy Bosworth. 

The play, written by Willy Russell, depicts the life of a bored British housewife, driven to having conversations with her kitchen wall.  When a friend wins a trip to the Greek Islands and invites her along, Shirley’s world opens up with new adventures.  This funny, heartwarming play was also a popular movie.  Sharyn performed this show several years ago at the Pewter Plough Playhouse and is delighted to reprise her role for By the Sea Productions' re-opening premiere.

“Shirley Valentine” plays one weekend only, August 13-15, with performances on Friday and Saturday evening at 7 pm and a Sunday matinee at 3 pm.  To ensure our audience's comfort, there will be limited seating, so reservations are strongly recommended.
