Calendar Girls
by City Theatre Company

Jun. 17 - Jun. 18

Written by Tim Firth and based on a true story, eleven Women's Institute members find themselves exposed in ways they’d never expected, revealing more than they’d ever planned. Despite raised eyebrows from the local community, they go to great lengths to bare their souls – and a little more - for a charity they believe in. Breaking free from societal expectations and discovering a newfound sense of confidence and sisterhood, these calendar girls turn heads and capture hearts around the world.

From the Internet:

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.
