BWW Review: Relatable HICK, Eleanor Roosevelt's Lesbian Love Story, at Theatre ProjectBWW Review: Relatable HICK, Eleanor Roosevelt's Lesbian Love Story, at Theatre Project

There's journalistic ethics: what happens when a reporter gets too close to a subject, and the tricky line between reporting and public relations. Then there's the problem encountered by an involuntary archivist: what to do with a trove of letters that reveal a historical personage's private life? And most of all, there's a strange love triangle: on the evidence of the play, Hickok was nearly as smitten with Franklin Roosevelt's policies as she was with his wife, going so far as to serve in his administration.
