    Calendar Girls Summary   
     When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, 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 (Women's Institute)
    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. Based on
    the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia
    Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest
    selling play in British theatre history.   ((Samuel French Plays)

    "Calendar Girls, with a script by Tim Firth who also co-wrote the movie, achieves exactly what it sets out to do.
    It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, and it leaves you feeling better about life than you did when you entered
    the theatre." - The Telegraph
