Important Information

Contains strong language, adult humour and themes of fertility and menopause.

Shirley runs the best pub you’ve ever been to, a place where laughter is abundant, stories are shared, and connections are made.

Lovingly tended by the women in her family and invigorated by big anthems on the karaoke, Shirley faces a crisis when she discovers plans to sell the pub, threatening to unravel everything.

In a whirlwind of self-discovery, Shirley re-examines her relationship with her body, questions the power she holds, and confronts her own complicity in the process.

Her story is an electrifying exploration of identity, agency, and womanhood, told with raw honesty, infectious humour, and music from some of our favourite divas.

Immerse yourself in the sharply real and wildly fantastical world of ‘SHIRLEY,’ where every night is a night to remember.

Sit with Shirley tickets

Seating at the bar is unreserved and will be allocated on the night on a first come first served basis, groups of 2 or more are advised to arrive early to ensure the highest possibility of being seated on the same table.

The Shirley script is designed to be accessible to audiences without the need for audio de-scription. The company have worked with access dramaturg Tafsila Khan to convey all necessary visual information through the show’s audio elements. There will be a touch tour before the show, where you can explore the set, costumes and textures.
