This play follows Eleanor Roosevelt from her lonely neglected childhood to the world stage. Through her eyes, we witness the political rise of Franklin D. Roosevelt, whom she marries at 20 and for whom she bears six children. We follow her as she completely reinvents the role of First Lady. We become her confidants as she reveals the woman beneath the liberal icon and crusader for human rights, reviled by reactionaries but a beacon of hope to working people and minorities. We watch as she overcomes the death of her husband to head the U.N.'s Human Rights Commission and lead the crafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Jane VanBoskirk has been performing women in history for the past 40 years. "Eleanor Roosevelt" encompasses all the historical women she has portrayed and is the high point of her career.
