About This Show

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 are coping. In her last days, as the Cuban Missile Crisis pushes the world to the brink of final catastrophe, Eleanor relives her journey. Granted special permission to use Eleanor’s writings, Alison Skilbeck’s new one-woman show explores the public, and hidden, life of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th century.
