CALENDAR GIRLS is funny, quirky and poignant. The play is based on a very inspiring true story. When Annies husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee for the sitting area in the local hospital waiting room. A group of extraordinary women persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar, their modesty spared only by artfully placed cakes, knitting and floral arrangements, thus sparking a global phenomenon. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annies friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
