Ingrid Garner, 12-time award-winning creator of Eleanor's Story: An American Girl In Hitler's Germany, delivers a fascinating sequel to her grandmother's memoir. Eleanor came of age as an enemy alien in Nazi Berlin, but upon her long-awaited return home, she struggles to assimilate into peaceful American society while haunted by war trauma. It is an experience all too familiar for today's refugees from violence worldwide. The war within has just begun.

Eleanor’s Story: Life After War

Ingrid Garner—Royal Albert Arms

I cannot recommend this show enough if you’re into history and storytelling. Ingrid tells the story of her grandmother Eleanor after World War 2, and it is gripping, stunningly performed, and has so much heart. The story is based on her grandmother’s book, Eleanor’s Story: An American Girl in Hitler’s Germany. The true story is presented in such a compelling way, with Ingrid masterfully playing every character in the cast, and creatively using minimal props, perfectly timed sound cues, and lights to create the scene. She is absolutely captivating on stage. For such heavy material, it was a beautiful show. I wept. Make sure you bring Kleenex and GO SEE THIS SHOW.
