Synopsis

Becoming Eleanor dramatizes the events that shaped the early life and character of Eleanor of Aquitaine from ages 15 to 29. Considered the most extraordinary woman in 12th-century European history, Eleanor was a key figure in both French and English politics until her death at age 82. She defied the church and tradition, redefining what a woman could be and could do. Her remarkable journey, told in this play, shows how she became the most influential woman of her time, eventually ruling as queen of both France and England.
