Calendar Girls: The Musical

Calendar Girls is a musical with music and lyrics by Gary Barlow and a book by Tim Firth. The musical is based on the 2003 film Calendar Girls, which is in turn based on a true story.

Annie’s husband John dies from cancer at an early age. Her close friend, Chris, wants to purchase a comfortable sofa for the visitors’ lounge in the hospital where John was treated. She hits upon the idea of printing a calendar featuring some of the members of the Knapely branch of the Women’s Institute, discreetly posing nude while engaged in traditional WI activities, such as baking and knitting, in order to raise funds. Her proposal is initially met with great scepticism, but she eventually convinces ten women to participate in the project with her. They enlist one of the hospital workers, an amateur photographer named Lawrence, to help them with the calendar.
