Four ladies who have only just met make a bold decision to escape the dire winter weather of 1920's London and rent a villa in Italy for the month of April. All have very different characters and backgrounds, but each has a deep dissatisfaction with their everyday lives.

Will their time together at beautiful San Salvatore help bring them the friendship, resolution, peace and most of all, love, they crave ? Join Lotty, Rose, Caroline, Mrs Fisher and assorted husbands on their Italian idyll to find out, in this gentle play adapted by Bonnie Roberts from the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim

Presented by arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Company, Woodstock, Illinois
