Calendar Girls is based on the revealing true story of eleven Yorkshire women who came up with a cheeky way to help a grieving friend, honor a loved one's memory and raise money for charity.
When Annie's husband dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris decide to raise money for a new settee for the local hospital waiting room. They manage to convince their fellow Women's Institute members to bare it all for an "alternative" calendar. The once prim, tea-and-crumpets ladies soon find themselves in the midst of a media firestorm that puts their friendships to the test.
"It’s a show full of poignant moments – about friendship, determination and hope; about loss in many forms; about the importance of acceptance; about knowing when to let go. But it also offers plenty of humour, as the six friends and WI members decide to pose nude for a calendar" - Liverpool Daily Post
"Smash-hit show...hilarious yet touching play." - InformedEDINBURGH.co.uk
