This popular play is based on the true story of eleven women from the Yorkshire County chapter of the Women’s Institute. When Annie’s husband dies of cancer, she decides to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital’s waiting room. She manages to persuade her female neighbours, including best friend Chris, to pose nude in a fundraising calendar. Their new-found fame puts their friendship to the test in this funny, heartwarming comedy.
