When Annie's husband John dies of Leukaemia she and her best friend, Chris, decide to raise money for a new settee for the local hospital waiting room.
They manage to persuade four fellow Women's Institute members Cora, Celia, Ruth and Jessie to pose nude for an 'alternative' calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer, Lawrence.
News of the women's charitable venture spreads like wild fire and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapely in the Yorkshire Dales. The Calendar is a success but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of new found fame.
Based on a true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.
