Hospice with bird feeder in garden

The play, based on the 2003 Miramax movie of the same name, follows a group of middle-aged Yorkshire women who strip for a calendar to raise money for the hospital where one of their husbands is being treated for cancer.

Lynn Jones is on the board of Calliope Muses and works backstage on the production. She says they printed 200 copies of their calendar and have already sold 100 copies at $20 each. Net proceeds go to Ian Anderson House, the cancer hospice.
