Calendar Girls

22nd - 29th September 2012

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund.

When Annie's husband John dies of leukaemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

'Calendar Girls' originally opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2008, and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.
