Enchanted April

By Matthew Barber, from the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim

This delightful romantic comedy, based on the beloved novel, comes to the FAC for the first time, following 500 critically-acclaimed productions worldwide. Feeling lost in the shadows of marriage and post-WWI society, two unhappy London housewives rent a villa in Italy for a ladies-only holiday away – reluctantly recruiting a pair of difficult, upper-class women to share the cost and the experience. Together, among the wisteria blossoms and the Mediterranean sunshine, the four women clash — and then begin to bond and bloom — until men once again upset the balance.

“As good as they come … a lush, thoroughly refreshing theatrical holiday. A magical triumph.” -LA Times
“A play where every single element falls perfectly into place … a show that leaves you positively glowing.” -NY Theatre
