Based on the Miramax motion picture by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth
The play of the film that inspired a million calendars, this is the original, remarkable true story of the Knapeley WI and their revealing attempts to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund. When Annie’s husband dies of Leukaemia she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. The idea to produce a cheeky charity calendar ‘with a difference’ causes waves among the WI hierarchy, not to mention the locals... and even Hollywood. Guaranteed to make you laugh and cry in equal measures, this funny, sentimental and utterly captivating story should be the first date in your calendar for 2013.
