"Enchanted April", indeed! We begin our story in England, February 1922. It's damp, dreary, depressing, soggy, foggy, and well, just downright miserable. Relationships inside Lotty & Mellersh Wilton's household mirror this unhappy, gloomy weather. All seems hopeless until Lotty accidentally spots a small ad in the 'Times' for a month's let in a small Italian castle that promises 'wisteria and sunshine'.

She bamboozles her just as unhappy friend, Rose, to share the rent and go with her for the month of April.....without their husbands. They then place a discreet ad in the 'Times' for two ladies of 'genteel' standing to accompany them and split the rent four ways. An arrogant, opinionated, formidable Mrs. Graves and a troubled society beauty, Lady Caroline, answer the ad and the four of them are on their way to the 'enchanted' villa.

Add to this wonderful mix of characters an Italian housekeeper, who doesn't speak a word of English, as well as the owner of the castle, and you will find yourself delighted and charmed. Humour, romance, love, wisteria and sunshine will send our audiences home feeling optimistic about life and human beings.
