Enchanted April is a major award-winning play that has charmed audiences around the world. It follows the adventures of four British women who rent a villa in Italy for the month of April to escape humdrum lives and crumbling marriages. The sun shines. The ladies bloom. And rediscover themselves in ways that they – and we – could never expect. And so do their husbands!

If you loved the film – Miranda Richardson, Josie Lawrence, Alfred Molina, Jim Broadbent – or read the book, you will be entranced by this stunning production.
