THE BIG SLEEPOVER
AT THE WHITE HOUSE
For three weeks at the end of 1941, just after the attack on Pearl Harbour, Winston Churchill invited himself to the White House to hold talks with President Franklin Roosevelt. He was not altogether the perfect house guest, much to the annoyance of Eleanor Roosevelt, but he and Roosevelt did fashion a joint enterprise which brought the US into World War II and saved Europe from Nazi domination as well as defeating the Japanese in the Far East. This is a commission to dramatise this story, based on a book by James Mikel Wilson and a narrative adaptation by Lawrence Holofcener. Updates will follow.
