About the Author

Tim Firth

Firth was born in Wirral, Merseyside, in the North West of England. He spent most of his time at his Warrington comprehensive school writing songs and it was only a couple of months before going to Cambridge to read English that he attended an Arvon Foundation course in West Yorkshire. This was run by Willy Russell and whilst on it, Firth had to write dialogue. He wrote about the only thing he knew - two sixteen-year-olds trying to write a song. Another course participant optioned it for his production company and Firth decided to become a writer...

...The play Calendar Girls, adapted by Firth from his own film, found favour with audiences across the UK during its 2008/09 tour, and in the process broke the all-time British box office record for a play and also continued to sell out during its West End residency. In 2010, the hit comedy embarked on a UK country wide tour, one of the largest ever for a play. Calendar Girls is also a success across the globe, playing in Germany, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Israel, Greece, Argentina, France, Czech Republic, Belgium, Holland, Hungary, Poland, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Russia, Bulgaria and Slovakia.. In 2011 it beat the all-time British box office record for a play, and has since raised over half a million pounds for Blood Cancer Charities, funding its own research project in Yorkshire hospitals...
