Calendar Girls

The Stage production of the award winning 2003 movie. Based on the true story of a group of Yorkshire women in the WI who produced a nude calendar to raise money for Leukaemia Research in April 1999.

This was be the first time that Calendar Girls will be performed by an amatuer production in Hertforshire! EHOS are proud to perform this funny and heart warming show to raise funds for the Isabel Hospice and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research

STORY
When Annie Clarke’s husband John dies from leukaemia at an early age, her close friend Chris Harper, anxious to purchase a comfortable sofa for the visitors lounge in the hospital where he was treated, hits upon the idea of printing a calendar featuring some of the members of the Knapely chapter of the Women’s Institute discreetly posing nude while engaged in everyday activities, such as baking and knitting, in order to raise funds.

Her proposal initially is 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 concept.
