Reno, NV. Shirley Valentine comes back to the Brüka stage.  Written by Willy Russell, who, like all the best folk artists, holds up familiar aspects of life for inspection and enjoyment. He is an instinctive feminist and expresses a radical desire for people to improve their lives and see themselves with more dignity. This witty, buoyant comedy explores the wild strategy a middle-aged woman comes up with to love just being herself. Mary Bennett revives her role as Shirley Valentine, directed by Kristin Moffitt who was recently seen on stage in God Of Carnage at Brüka. 

Shirley Valentine plays May 31 through June 22, 2013 at Brüka Theatre in downtown Reno. Opening night (May 31) enjoys a post-show champagne reception with catering by the Wild River Grille. Thursday through Saturday with one Wednesday night show – June 19.  All evening shows play at 8 PM with one Sunday matinee performances on June 9 at 2 PM.
