7pm Thursday. Historians debated for decades whether Eleanor Roosevelt was a lesbian. Writer Terry Baum's and director Carolyn Myers' new play, Hick: A Love Story - The Romance of Lorena Hickok and Eleanor Roosevelt is about the romance between arguably America’s most influential First Lady - the wife of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, President during the Great Depression and World War 2 (1933-45) - and the USA’s most prominent woman journalist at the time.
