Truly Eleanor

Delvena Theatre Company

August 23, 7 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room

In this three-person, live performance, Eleanor shares some of her most private and meaningful moments - her lonely childhood; her joyous courtship/marriage with her fifth cousin, Franklin; her devastation at Franklin's love affair with her social secretary; her resolve to make him president after his polio diagnosis; her involvement in his presidency; and her eventual triumph at the United Nations.  "Truly Eleanor” takes a candid look at our greatest First Lady's courage and at her great contributions to human rights and liberty for all.  The cast will open up for discussion of the subject matter after the performance.

This original edutainment production features Lynne Moulton, Joseph Zamparelli and Fran Baron, from the the Delvena Theatre Company.
