Based on the popular 2003 Helen Mirren movie (which in turn was based on a true story), the plot is rather simple: After the death of her best friend's husband from cancer, spirited Yorkshire housewife Chris Harper hatches a scheme to raise money for a memorial to him. She encourages her friends to create a saucy calendar - using the middle-aged women of their village as nude models. The idea stuns the husbands and a wary young photographer. Gwen Overland directs this hilarious and touching play.
