Based on the 2013 international movie hit "Calendar Girls", finally available in Italian!
Chris and Annie are close friends, and run their quiet lives in a tiny Yorkshire village. When Annie's husband dies with leukemia, Chris decides to raise funds to replace the sofa in the hospital waiting room, involving the Women Association she is part of. With the complicity of a photographer friend, they decide to publish a calendar depicting their daily activities but with a special twist... they are totally undressed! Based on a true story, the ladies raised over £1million for the Leukemia Society.
The play is forewarded by Franco Mandelli, President of AIL (Associazione Italiana contro le Leucemie, i Linfomi e il Mieloma)
