About the play: Based on the true story of members of The Women’s Institute in Knapley Village in Yorkshire County who pose nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund. When Annie’s husband John dies, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money to buy a new settee for the hospital’s family room. They manage to persuade four fellow members to pose nude with them to make a calendar to sell, but the whole project becomes way bigger than anyone could have imagined and tests the limits of friendship and relationships.
This play is truly an ensemble piece and every cast member is important to the process. Rehearsals will begin August 13th and run 3-4 times a week until opening. An English dialect will be required for the show. Think Shakespeare. The most important aspect of this production is the relationship that each character has with the others. I cannot emphasize this strongly enough!!! The nudity in the show relies on “fabulous concealment” and will be handled with care. But there are no “nude suits” ladies, you will ultimately, in fact, be nude. But trust me, no one other than your fellow actors will see anything they shouldn’t.
We will be making an actual calendar to raise money to benefit The Leukemia Foundation, so the whole cast and production staff will be involved in some sort of pose for a photo shoot!
