“The kind of play that reminds you of why you love
theatre!”- Variety
When two frustrated London housewives decide to rent a
villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages, they recruit two
very different English women to share the cost and the experience. There, among
the wisteria blossoms and Mediterranean sunshine, all four bloom

Charlotte Wilkins – Lotty – 30’s, dowdy, childless, fed
up, earnest, no social graces, wispy hair, crumpled hat, face puckered with
effort and fear, instant soul-mate with Rose, shocked by her own daring at
planning this adventure as well as the extravagance of it. Finds the Italian
setting wildly, ridiculously, divinely beautiful.
Rose Arbuthnot – older than Lotty, 30’s, prudish,
proper, gives every penny to the poor to make up for her husband’s evil books,
she can’t spend anything on her own enjoyment because of where the money comes
from. Says of her husband’s writing, “No one should write a book God
wouldn’t like to read.”
Clerk – over 20, male or female
Lady Caroline Dester – 28 – 35, enchantress and society
beauty. Single, from a wealthy, well-known family, wants quiet and to escape
from the grabbing hands of men. Wants to recover from too much of everything an
indulged young woman knows. Has an overbearing mother who “thinks nothing
of value could come from the thinking of a beautiful young woman.”
Thomas Briggs – 30’s, handsome, portraitist who
inherited the castle. Uses a hat and cane, nice guy smitten with Caroline at
first sight.
Mrs. William Fisher – 65, aggressive dowager, widowed
11 years ago, still wearing black. Offers for her personal references:
Archbishop of Canterbury, Pres. of the Royal Academy, Gov. of Bank of England.
Lives in the past where eminent Victorians such as Tennyson and Browning were
family friends. Walks with a cane and wants only to sit in the sun and
Domenico – 30+, Italian speaking – caretaker of the
Francesca – 30+, Italian speaking- housekeeper for the
Mellersh Wilkins – 35-45, discreet family solicitor,
forceful, top-hatted, frock-coated, respectable, with a high opinion of
himself. “Needing an airing” according to Lotty, his wife. Thrifty
except where his food is concerned.
Frederick Arbuthnot – (a.k.a. Ferdinand Arrundel)
– 35-45, writer of successful, salacious, biographies of royalty: Cleopatra,
du’ Barry. He writes under a pseudonym to respect his wife’s sensibilities.
Spends most of his time away from her and knows Lady Caroline very well in his
“other life.”
