A wonderful start of a new Mayflower Bookshop event season, in the new location! Played by our own Freek Bouricius under the direction of Sigrid de Zwart, Shirley Valentine is a lonely British housewife, looking back on her life. All on her own, Freek Bouricius intrigued the enthusiastic Mayflower audience in a gripping monologue bringing across the whole range of emotions Shirley experiences. The timing of the play – in the midst of the corona crisis – ensured everyone was able to understand the boredom, frustration and emptiness Shirley Valentine faces. The sketch also attracted the attention of passers-by in the Catharinasteeg, who were able to enjoy Freek’s performance through the shop windows!
