The MAC Theater Playwrights Incubator (MTPI) is pleased to present a new play by first time playwright Cynthia Krause. Krause was selected for the inaugural year of the MTPI program for her short play, a one-woman performance titled An Hour with Eleanor. It is a telling of the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, based on historical events. The play explores a life of joys and sorrows experienced by this controversial political figure who, along with being the wife of an American president, was a catalyst for social change in her own right. Audience members follow her life’s journey working toward the betterment of her world.
Mentors for the first year of the MTPI program include Maura Van Voris and Richard Van Voris. The play is directed by Richard Van Voris and Maura Van Voris, and features Linda Monchik as Eleanor Roosevelt. Guests will enjoy this debut tea time performance follwed by an informal Q&A with the director, actor, and playwright, plus light refreshments.
