In the winter of 1922, Lotty and Rose, two very frustrated housewives find themselves trapped in the gloom of bleak marriages and perpetual London rain. All seems hopeless until they decide to use their dress money and what little savings they have to rent a villa in Italy for the month of April. Joined there by a young English countess and a grumpy English dowager their lives – and the lives of their two new friends - blossom in mysterious and unexpected ways. This 2003 Tony Award nominee for Best Play promises to delight and inspire all who dream of wisteria blossoms, sunshine and new beginnings.

Enchanted April is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
