The Girls

Phoenix Theatre, Charing Cross Road, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 0JP

Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s musical The Girls receives its West End premiere at the Phoenix Theatre, based on the Firth's hit 2003 film Calendar Girls.

Based on a true story, a Women’s Institute group seek an innovative way to fundraise for a local hospital in memory of one of their husbands, becoming ordinary ladies who achieve the extraordinary in the process.

When the group come up with the idea of posing for a tasteful nude calendar, becoming the Yorkshire Calendar Girls, the story becomes a media sensation, and the group are thrust into the limelight – along with their friendships and strained personal lives.

Based on the true story, the film and then award-winning play have both received critical acclaim, with the latter at The Grand Theatre in Leeds and The Lowry Theatre, Salford, and the musical adaptation is now set to take the West End by storm.
