The Weird Sisters Theatre Project kicks off their 2018 season with a production of “Enchanted April” by Matthew Barber, based on the novel by Elizabeth von Arnim. Feeling lost in the shadows of marriage and forgotten in the rush of 1920s post-war society, two London housewives pool their savings to 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. Things lost are soon found as the women clash, then begin to bond and bloom under the Mediterranean sun. The play runs July 13-29 at Out of the Box Theatre.
