The President’s heart: a Second World War secret.

Franklin Roosevelt’s health is irreparably damaged but his focus is on the aftermath of the war and establishing the United Nations.

While recovering his ailing strength in the care of his close confidante Daisy Suckley and his beleaguered cardiologist Dr Bruenn, Franklin welcomes a phone call from his wife, Eleanor. He hopes to mend their estranged relationship, but can his heart take it?

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
