Mrs Roosevelt Flies to London 

Join us for a special performance at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, presented in partnership by the Institute of Historical Research and the British Association for American Studies.

Actress Alison Skilbeck will perform her meticulously researched one-woman show about Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to wartime London in 1942 to visit US troops and see how British women were coping with the war effort. Granted special permission by the Roosevelt Estate to use some of Eleanor’s writings, Skilbeck’s show explores the public and hidden life of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th century.

‘Mrs Roosevelt Files to London’ had a nearly sold out run in 2016, and returns for a one-night only performance.


Tickets are £5 for students or £7.50 for general admission.
