The adventurous Louis de Rougemont invites you and your family to hear his amazing story of bravery, survival and celebrity that left nineteenth-century England spellbound. Dare to be whisked away in a story of the high seas, populated by exotic islanders, flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a monstrous man-eating octopus. Shipwrecked! examines how far we’re willing to blur the line between fact and fiction in order to leave our mark on the world.

Feeling lost in their marriages and in the rapidly shifting social currents of post-WWI London, two middle-class housewives rent a villa in Italy for an impulsive holiday away from their lives, reluctantly recruiting a pair of independent upper-class women to share the cost and experience. There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four clash—and then begin to bloom—rediscovering themselves in ways that they never could have imagined.

Returns to the Liberty Theatre for 3 nights only! This transformative comedy follows middle-aged Liverpool housewife Shirley Valentine, played by Denise Simone, who is trapped in humdrum domesticity, frequently talking to her kitchen walls just for a bit of conversation. But when her best friend wins a trip-for-two to Greece, Shirley is suddenly pulled away from her boredom into a life-altering adventure. Faced with sudden self-awareness, Shirley begins to see the world, and herself, in a different light.
