Shirley ValentineSt Helens Theatre Royal announces the only 2012 UK performances of Willy Russell's Shirley Valentine.

Reprising her role is one of the all-time great Shirleys and Liverpool comedienne Pauline Daniels.

It will be her 21st anniversary performing the role from September 13-16.

Pauline said: "It's the perfect venue for a perfect piece to celebrate my 21st year, I'm really looking forward to bringing my best friend Shirley to St Helens."

Since its première in 1986, Shirley Valentine has become a theatrical institution and a much-loved mainstay on the boards of playhouses across the globe.

This is a revival of a much loved one-woman show about a jaded housewife's journey of self discovery.
