Fleshed out comic yarn : a review
Hadley, Bree J. (2010) Fleshed out comic yarn : a review. The Australian, 12(Apr).
Calendar Girls. By Tim Firth. Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane, April 10.
AN adaptation of the 2003 film of the same name, Calendar Girls is a light piece of entertainment.
Following the death of her husband John from leukaemia, Annie and her friend Chris convince the members of their local Yorkshire Women's Institute to pose for a nude calendar to raise funds to refurbish the local hospital's run-down relatives' room.
This premise -- and the opportunities for comic engagement it entails -- drives the plot of Tim Firth's stage adaptation of Calendar Girls.
