News Norment Is Eleanor for Berkshire Theatre Festival Stage and screen actress Elizabeth Norment will star in Rhoda Lerman's one-woman play, Eleanor: Her Secret Journey, for the Berkshire Theatre Festival.

Lerman's work, based on her book "Eleanor: A Novel," will play the Berkshire Theatre Festival's Unicorn Stage Aug. 26-Nov. 9. Stephen Temperley directs the 90-minute monologue, described as an "intimate portrait of the First Lady [that] reveals her private struggles and offers a distinctly feminine look at politics, power, and war. She and her husband changed America forever. They lifted our society at a time when all appeared hopeless."

Norment has appeared on Broadway in A Touch of the Poet and Plenty. Among her stage credits are the world premiere of The Clean House at Yale Rep, as well as No End of Blame, Sganarelle, Cloud Nine, Third and Homebody/Kabul. On screen Norment has been seen in "Law & Order," "Mad About You," "L.A. Law" and "St. Elsewhere."
