When Annie’s husband dies of leukemia, she and her friends set out to raise funds for a local charity — by posing for a calendar completely in the buff. Positioned behind strategically placed flower arrangements, cakes, and knitting projects, the women discover the beauty within themselves and one another. When news of the women’s hilarious venture spreads like wildfire, the women find themselves exposed in ways they hadn’t anticipated, and they reach for a new level of understanding and friendship that will carry them through all the days to come. “…in the great good cause of cheering us up in hard times, Calendar Girls is just the ticket.” — Telegraph

“This is my favorite kind of play because it celebrates how deliciously human we are while also revealing how incredibly generous we can be when one of our own is in need of hope.” —Mary Finnerty, Director
