Sunday, June 9, 2024 5:00 PM - Sunday, July 14, 2024 5:00 PM (PDT)


In celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, The Marsh San Francisco will present "Hick: A Love Story," a play based on Eleanor Roosevelt’s letters to Lorena Hickok, written by award-winning pioneer lesbian playwright/actor Terry Baum with playwright/actor Pat Bond. This captivating solo show follows Eleanor Roosevelt's love affair with reporter, Lorena Hickok, their 30-year relationship, and their humanitarian work. Hickok was the most famous female journalist of her time and the first woman to have a byline on the front page of The New York Times. The discovery of 2,336 touching and intimate letters in 1978 revealed a love affair and lifelong friendship. In "Hick: A Love Story," Baum's portrayal is made up of precise quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt's letters, authenticated and approved by her literary estate, bringing to life this extraordinary relationship, the profound connection the two shared, and the secret nature of their bond in a society that did not publicly admit nontraditional relationships.
