Main Stage Series


 CALENDAR GIRLS

By Tim Firth

 

When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Womens' Institute (WI) members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Based on the true story of eleven WI members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the fastest selling play in British theatre history.

Double-Header Comedy: Laundry & Bourbon and Lone Star  -  Cape Charles
(11/20/2014 - 11/23/2014)
Calendar Image

Two one act comedies

Performed by the Arts Enter Theapians

Directed by Clelia Sheppard and Mellisa Stein

Historic Palace Theatre
301-305 Mason Avenue
Cape Charles, VA  23310

In “Laundry and Bourbon”, directed by Clelia Sheppard,  the action centers on the discontent and very funny gossip of three small-town wives whose marriages have turned out to be less than was hoped for. It was written as a companion piece to “Lonestar”, directed by Mellisa Stein, a  hilarious study of a pair of Texas "good ole boys" on a Saturday night carouse.  The play introduced McLure as an exciting new playwright of major potential. The plays constitute a full evening of theatre fun.

Tickets
Adults - $15
