When two frustrated London housewives, Lotty Wilton (Brooke Wardle) and Rose Arnott (Hollie Swapp) decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages, they recruit two very different English women, Caroline Bramble (Stefanie Wells) and Mrs. Graves (Laurie Allen) to share the cost and the experience. There, among the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine they meet Antony Wilding (Aaron Spurlock), all four bloom again, rediscovering themselves in ways that they, and we, could never have expected.
Scott Nelson, the director, who is well known for his productions at the Heritage Theatre as well as the local schools, believes that this is a romantic comedy that all will enjoy and have a good time. He says it is nothing too serious or dramatic, just fun.
