CALENDAR GIRLS by TIM FIRTH
DIRECTOR: BARRY McKENNA

Copenhagen Theatre Circle is proud to present the Scandinavian premiere in English of Tim Firth's outstandingly successful comedy Calendar Girls.

When Annie's husband, John dies of leukaemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new sofa in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow members of the Women's Institute (WI) to pose nude with them for a "Pirelli-type" calendar, with a little help from amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

The play is based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude in 1998 for a calendar to raise money for leukaemia research. This heartwarming yet funny story of ordinary people who felt the need to do something to redress the loss of a much-loved member of their community is the thread that runs through the whole play.

Calendar Girlsopened at the Chichester Festival Theatre in 2008 and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history. The stage play was preceded by the 2003 award-winning film Calendar Girls, starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters.

"It's marvellous theatre, guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and come out singing Jerusalem"
- Mail on Sunday

"Dazzlingly funny, shamelessly sentimental and utterly captivating ... the mingling of pathos and comedy here is simply unbeatable"
- Lloyd Evans, The Spectator

In performing Calendar Girls, the CTC automatically donates a percentage of the performance fee to leukaemia research in the United Kingdom.
