The deadline is looming for advance tickets for Abbey Theatre Club’s forthcoming production of a touching modern British classic.

Their next production is of the multi award-winning ‘Calendar Girls’ by Tim Firth, and is sure to be hit with audiences, hence the advanced bookings which are available until Wednesday, January 15.

It tells the true life story of the group of fearless Yorkshire WI members who create a smash hit nude calendar to raise funds for cancer treatment.

Full of humour, heart-ache and life-affirming joy, the 2003 film was adapted for the stage in 2008 for the Chichester Festival Theatre and later moved to the Noel Coward Theatre in London.

The Abbey Theatre Club version will be in the capable hands of producer Alan Christison and is set to run from January 31 to February 8, at the usual curtains up time of 7.30 p.m.

Tickets are £7 and can be obtained online at www.theabbeytheatre.org or in writing with remittance to Bob Sawley, 15 Bankhead Road, Arbroath, DD11 2DL, before Wednesday.

General booking is available at the Abbey Theatre, Abbot Street, from Sunday, January 19, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and from VisitScotland on 01241 872 609 from Monday, January 20.
