Talking to the kitchen wall is the only way for Shirley to unload her frustration about her mundane marriage and her dreams left unpursued. Her life is a world of gray disappointment before a trip to Crete shatters her bleak existence with a vibrancy of people, landscape and mindset that she didn’t realize she was missing. This one-woman show tells the story of the “everywoman” on a pilgrimage to find herself, discovering her own wit and independence along the way. Shirley proves that every woman has a story to live— if they could just find the courage to live it. Appropriate for all ages.
