Mrs Roosevelt Flies To London

Mrs Roosevelt Flies To London

Written & performed by Alison Skilbeck
Directed by Lucy Skilbeck

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 women are coping.

Nominated for a Best Female Performance Offie Award for her performance, and granted special permission from the Roosevelt Estate to use Eleanor's writings, Alison Skilbeck's one-woman show explores the public and hidden life of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th century.

Mrs Roosevelt Flies to London had a near sold out 2016 tour and Edinburgh Fringe run at Assembly.
