THE Octagon Theatre is preparing to stage its final off-site production before it re-opens later this year.

A new production of Willy Russell’s comedy Shirley Valentine will take to the stage on February 10 at the Library Theatre in Bolton Library.

The Octagon Theatre has undergone a multi-million pound transformation to improve access and facilities for both visitors and actors.

It stars Mina Anwar as the frustrated housewife to escape her small town life, leaving her husband behind as she seeks adventure in Greece.

Mina’s credits include her breakthrough TV role as PC Maggie Habib in both seasons of BBC One’s sitcom The Thin Blue Line. She also originated the role of Ray in acclaimed musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield and its West End Transfer.

Tickets are priced at £29 - £14. Visit for more information.
