In the three-person live performance, the First Lady shares some of her most private and meaningful moments. She describes her lonely childhood, her joyous courtship and 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.

According to Delvena Theatre Company, "Truly Eleanor” takes a candid look at the First Lady's courage and her great contributions to human rights and liberty for all.

The original edutainment production features Lynne Moulton, Joseph Zamparelli, and Fran Baron. Following the performance, the cast will open a discussion of the subject matter.

In an effort to enrich the theatrical and educational experience, Delvena includes a post-show discussion between the cast and the audience.
