Starring Tony Award-Winner Trezana Beverley(Broadway: For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf) as Eleanor Roosevelt and Drama Desk Award-Winner Mary Bacon (Public's Coal Country) as Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Eleanor, and Alice centers on two of the most influential women of the 20th century. Throughout the historical drama, Eleanor and Alice Roosevelt – friends, cousins, and rivals - meet at eight crucial moments throughout their lives. They feud, laugh, commiserate, and argue over their husbands, children, the nature of politics, and the state of the world. One a Democrat and one a Republican, throughout 60 years of meetings, they witness a changing world from their unique vantage points. Through their accomplishments, Eleanor and Alice ultimately help build a foundation that benefits women in politics today.
