TIM Firth’s Calendar Girls has been a rip-roaring film, and theatre success.

This week – for the second time in a year – it returns to Milton Keynes Theatre for a two week stay.

It’s arrival here on Monday is as part of its final UK tour before the amateur rights are released in 2012.

You know the story – a group of ordinary women, members of a Yorkshire WI, spark a global phenomenon by persuading one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference, and the lasses reveal more than they ever imagined...

An all-star cast this time comprises Lynda Bellingham, Jennifer Ellison, Trudie Goodwin, Ruth Madoc, Bernie Nolan, Gwen Taylor, Diana Moran and Danielle Lineker.

Joe McGann and Bruno Langley also take roles in the piece, which is based on a true story.

Poignant, funny and well worth a view.
