Willy Russell’s career spans more than four decades; born in Liverpool in 1947, he left school at 15, became a women’s hairdresser, part-time singer/songwriter before returning to education and becoming a teacher. Two of Willy’s best-known plays have female protagonists, Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine.
