Based on playwright Joanna McClelland Glass' actual experience as secretary to Judge Francis Biddle, Attorney General under FDR and Chief Judge of the Nuremburg Trials, the play is set in 1967 when biddle is 81 years old and trying to put his life in order. Elegant, but sharply cantankerous, he struggles with the inevitability of his age and failing health. His wife had forced upon him a new secretary named Sarah, who is all of 25 years old, and the two struggle to communicate. This richly scripted story is a humorous look at generations colliding. Previews: Aug 20-21

The Queen Mary is proud to host the traveling exhibit, “Bob Hope: An American Treasure,” created in partnership with the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation and the World Golf Hall of Fame.
The 2,200-square-foot exhibit IS NOW OPEN on the ship where Hope performed his first wartime routine on the day World War II began.
“Bob Hope: An American Treasure,” includes reproductions of more than 200 vintage photos, seven videos and more than 170 items. These include an original vaudeville contract from 1922; his Ellis Island medal; the final set of golf clubs used in his life; Emmy and Honorary Oscar awards; an outfit he wore during USO tours; gifts and awards from Presidents and other celebrities; his Congressional Gold Medal awarded by President John F. Kennedy; and his "Honorary Veteran Citation" from Congress, which he called the most important honor of his life.
The exhibit tells Hope’s story through 15 themed displays that span his 100-year life. They celebrate his comedic contributions; achievements in entertainment; relationships with 11 U.S. Presidents; and enduring passion – golf. They also trace the Hope family's arrival at Ellis Island; their lives as immigrants in Cleveland; Bob Hope’s effort to strike it big in New York, which led him to a successful career and family life in Hollywood; and how a love for the military and golf took him around the world.
