Funny, poignant, and heartwarming. Escape to the warm Mediterranean sunshine and wisteria blossoms of a 1920s Italian villa with this Tony award-nominated play. Set against the backdrop of dreary post-WWI London, four women - strangers to one another - decide to take a holiday. Leaving their husbands behind, they venture into the unknown. When they arrive, personalities hilariously clash and friendships are forged as the women bloom again, but what will happen when the men unexpectedly arrive? A story of renewal and love, “Enchanted April” is a shining gem of a play!
Featuring Rosalind Ashford, Darlene Cah, Marianne Carruth, Lori Corda, Laura Depta, Ben Dawkins, Andy Millard, and Joel Perkin. Catherine Gillet directs the talented cast.
The Los Angeles Times calls it “As good as they come: a lush, thoroughly refreshing theatrical holiday. Escape has seldom seemed so sweet. A magical triumph.”
