Coastweek-- Fifteen years after she first
presented a monologue of the familiar story of Shirley
Valentine, Jean Hughes again wowed the CATS audience with a
scintillating, fresh and exciting performance on Saturday 9th
September 2017 at La Verandah.
The packed audience at La Verandah was
moved from pathos to laughter by her polished rendition of this
familiar story of a middle aged working wife trapped in
domesticity who dreams of escaping to a Greek island.
In the second half, the audience
accompanies her when she meets her Greek lover, now transformed
she is the archetypal beach comer in a diaphanous dress and
shades, relaxed and living the dream.
This viewer travelled with her on her
journey reveling in her flawless skill as she played the
audience like a musician caressing her violin.
It was a night never to be forgotten
and will be talked about for years to come.
