Calendar Girls has become the fastest selling play in British theatre history

It's based on the true story of eleven Women's Institute members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund

It begins when Annie's husband John dies of leukaemia and 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 Women's Institute members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar

With a little help from shy hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence

The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and soon hordes of Press descend on the small Yorkshire village

The calendar quickly becomes a huge success

But Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame
