Calry Drama Group are excited and proud to present Tim Firth’s play Calendar Girls. Based on the true story of a group of women of the Women’s Institute in 1999 and the Miramax motion picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth. Best friends Annie Clarke and Chris Harper live in the village of Knapely, where they spend much time at the local Women's Institute and with each other. When Annie's husband, John, is diagnosed with terminal leukaemia, Chris regularly visits them at the hospital. Here she discovers that relatives take their life into their own hands by sitting on the most uncomfortable couch in the relatives’ room. She hatches a plan to raise money to buy a new couch for the hospital after noticing a “girlie” calendar in a local mechanics shop. But she now has to convince the women of the WI that they too can produce a similar calendar. Similar but more tasteful of course!

A mix of tragedy with the right amount of humour, this production will have audiences admiring the courage and strength that comes from friendship. A production not to be missed to raise the spirits this January.
