Using the original writings of Eleanor Roosevelt, Alison Skilbeck’s critically acclaimed one-woman show reveals the public and private life of one of the mostextraordinary women of the 20th Century, from her daring trip to wartime Britain to her unconventional partnership with President Roosevelt.
In October 1942, Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of the President, takes a dangerous trip to wartime London, to visit US troops, and see how the British, most importantly the women, are coping.
In her last days, as the Cuban Missile Crisis pushes the world to the brink of final catastrophe, Eleanor relives her journey, from bomb-damaged Buckingham Palace to midnight factories, but also recalls her life, from unhappy child to unconventional wife, to becoming, in President Truman’s words ‘First Lady of the World’.
