Hick: A Love Story
Eleanor Roosevelt wrote 2,336 letters to the great love of her life, Lorena Hickok. Inspired by those letters, The Crackpot Crones present Terry Baum in a solo play: HICK: a love story, by Terry Baum and Pat Bond.
Lorena Hickok was the most famous woman reporter of her day, when she was assigned to cover Eleanor Roosevelt, FDR's wife, during the 1933 Presidential campaign. Hick and Eleanor fell in love. It was the best and worst thing that ever happened to Hick. she chose to sacrifice her own career and happiness to support the woman she loved, who became the greatest American woman of the 20th Century.
In developing HICK, pioneer lesbian playwright Terry Baum researched her papers at the FDR Library and talked to people who knew her. Baum uses ER's letters and Hick's own writing to recreate Hick's life. She also includes an excerpt from the late Pat Bond's play about Hick. This is a powerful part of our lesbian history - an astonishing and unexpected love story that we all should know.
