This 1989 Tony Award-winner is best known to the masses as a film starring Pauline Collins, who received an Oscar nod for her portrayal of the title charactera witty, streetwise middle-aged housewife who flees her humdrum life in Liverpool to rediscover herself in Greece. Unlike the film, the play is a one-character story and writer Willy Russells exceptional monologues are insightful, touching and incredibly hilarious. Its not often we get to experience a story from a womans perspective that isnt just about shopping, landing a man or dying of cancer, so treat yourself to some realism and enjoy an evening that reveals how complex and interesting women truly are.
