Written by Plays in Place’s Producing Artistic Director, Patrick Gabridge, Beloved Island: Windows on Campobello is a new 40-minute site-specific play that examines the relationship between the Roosevelts and a multi-generational family of housekeepers who looked after the Roosevelts and the Cottage for more than 40 years. The play will be staged in the living room of the Roosevelt Cottage, for small audiences of up to 35-40 people.
Plays in Place will consult on the production of this play, with the production duties handled by the Park staff and local actors.
