Enchanted April is a 2003 stage play by Matthew Barber, adapted from Elizabeth von Arnim's 1922 novel The Enchanted April. The play opened on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre on April 29, 2003, in a production directed by Michael Wilson.



Feeling lost in the shadows of marriage and post-World War I society, two unhappy London housewives 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. Together under the Mediterranean sun, the four women clash — and then begin to bond and bloom — until men once again upset the balance.
