The heroine is an ordinary middle-class English housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. When her husband shuns the egg and chips, Shirley escapes to Greece, has an “adventure” with a Greek fisherman and decides to stay. This is a hilarious, moving and honest play.
