Calendar Girls by Tim Firth
“…a kind of sweet, good-humored comedy…” – Roger Ebert
Based on the true story of eleven Women’s Institute (WI) members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund.
When Annie’s husband John dies of leukemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee for the local hospital’s waiting room. The question becomes, how to raise the money. After finding adult magazines in her son’s bedroom, a “girly” calendar at the local garage, sexually charged advertisements and more, Chris puts two and two together and devises a plan. Chris and Annie manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar, with a little help from shy hospital porter/amateur photographer, Lawrence. The news of the women’s charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and soon hordes of press descend on the small Yorkshire village, where hilarity ensues. The calendar quickly becomes a huge success. But Chris and Annie’s friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
Come see for yourself why Calendar Girls is Britain’s fastest selling play.
