Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund.
Friday 8 September 7.30pm
Saturday 9 September 2pm & 7.30pm
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 opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.
Calendar Girls features the talents of Robyn Banfield, Fiona Wallace, Tricia Baggs, Fiona Kennan, Wendy Russell, Carol Davidson, Melanie Matthews, John Lewis, John Head, Aaron-David Palmer, Anne Bowen, Gemma Marchant, Troy McKindley and Wendy Platt.
An Amateur Production BY ARRANGEMENT WITH ORiGiN™ THEATRICAL, ON BEHALF OF SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
