Calendar Girls

A group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference. Overcoming their initial reserve, the friends drop their dressing gowns to reveal all, modesty spared only by artfully placed cakes, knitting and flower arrangements. They spark a global phenomenon and find themselves exposed in ways they had never expected. It is a very English story quirky, poignant and hilarious, it is based on uplifting, inspiring true events.

The cast is equally uplifting! Patricia Hodge plays Miss April, Lynda Bellingham is Miss July. Gaynor Faye will play Miss March and Brigit Forsyth is Miss May. Miss June will be played by Elaine C Smith.

What a treat!
