Remarkable Theatre are proud to announce the poignant, quirky and hilarious British play "Calendar Girls" will be coming to Memorial Centre in Queenstown 12-14th September. Adapted by Tim Firth from the Miramax film of the same name, this play is based on an uplifting and very inspiring true story.

When Annie's husband John dies of Leukaemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Woman's Institute members - Cora, Celia, Ruth and Jessie - to pose nude with them for an "alternative WI calendar" with a little help from hospital porter and 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 Knapley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success but Chris & Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new found fame.

Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund. Calendar girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.
