The Phoenix Players presents
by Matthew Barber, from the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim.
Directed by Sally Lovejoy
Charmed by a beguiling advertisement and tired of a rainy London winter on top of their domestic problems, Lottie persuades Rose to get away from it all - and their husbands - by renting San Salvatore, a villa in Italy, for the month of April. They reluctantly recruit two other ladies to share both the cost and experience.
At San Salvatore, the sunshine and wisteria weave their magic, attitudes change, visitors arrive and new friendships, laughter, love and happiness return to change all their lives.
Set in the 1920s, this is a delightful, funny and heart-warming play. Don't miss it!
