As the countdown continues to Calendar Girls, we are featuring a backstage look at the play from those involved.
Next in the series is from one of the characters herself, Chris (played by Claire Harris):
My husband Rod and I own a flower shop. He’s a good bloke, works hard. I joined the WI to make me seem ‘respectable’ in the eyes of Rod’s mum. But I stayed in the WI because of the friendship and the support from the girls, chief among them, in my eyes at least, my best friend Annie. And because of the fun we have together. And because of the laughs. Yes, we get up to mischief and none bigger than the calendar. To be honest, we all went on quite a journey making that bloody calendar, together and individually. Was it worth it? Oh my God I tell yer: YES!
