Mrs Roosevelt Flies to London

10:25, 04 - 29 Aug

Returning to Edinburgh following a near sell-out 2016 Assembly season, Alison Skilbeck's critically acclaimed one-woman show reveals the public and private life of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th Century, Eleanor Roosevelt, from her daring trip to wartime Britain to her unconventional partnership with President Roosevelt.

Granted special permission to use Eleanor's diary and daily newspaper columns, this is the story of a passionate humanitarian, a woman beset by deep personal insecurities and tragedy, but one who never lost her passionate belief in the strength of the human spirit.
