WHO ARE THE PLAYERS?
By Tim Firth
Based on the Miramax Motion Picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth
Directed by Alexa Scott-Flaherty
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
"Unashamedly sentimental and full of heart and bare-faced cheek, Tim Firth's stage adaptation of his own film script, inspired by the group of Yorkshire WI members who stripped off for a charity calendar to raise money for Leukemia Research, should rake in a bob or two itself." - The Guardian
"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 humor, as the six friends and WI members decide to pose nude for a calendar" - Liverpool Daily Post
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
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 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.
