Virginia Hall risked life and limb to aid Allied Forces and French Resistance freedom fighters as an agent of the British Special Operations Executive and the United States Office of Strategic Services. After World War II she became one of the first female CIA officers until her retirement in 1966. A Maryland native who traveled the world as a covert intelligence officer, her awe-inspiring life-story has been a well-kept secret. Your audiences will be thrilled to "meet" her in this one-hour performance which is researched, written and brought to life by Rosemarie Law.
"I was spellbound during Rosemarie Law's performance about the American heroine of World War II, Virginia Hall. From the positive reactions of the other audience members, with lots of questions and answers during the after-show Q-and-A, we were all moved. It felt wonderful to experience our gratitude to a heroic woman leader in the Resistance." -- Karen Signell, Ph.D psychologist and author. 2019.
"What a fascinating, true life story! Of the 150 people in attendance, only 3 had heard or read about this American spy. Rosemarie Law truly honors and embodies the service, resilience and spirit of Virginia Hall. What a great reminder that we are all capable of making a difference. If your community enjoys stories about amazing people they will love Time-Travel with Virginia Hall. -- Stacy Brown, Life Engagement Director, North Carolina.
"...Absorbing and convincing--humorous and serious--warm and penetrating. I thought Virginia Hall herself was standing in front of me. Rosemarie took us convincingly through years of Ms. Hall's life, with just enough historical details to frame her personal and professional experiences. It was a great biographical introduction to an astonishing woman I'd never heard of. Rosemarie Law brought Virginia Hall to life through her research, original script and dramatic performance." --Sonja Brooks, Executive Director of Sisohpromatem Art Foundation Inc., Kentucky.
"There's no mistaking when someone loves history so much, she will not let it be forgotten. That is at the heart of what you will appreciate about Rosemarie Law in her riveting performance of the Maryland-born spy, Virginia Hall, often alluded to as the most threatening of the Allied spies by the Nazis who tried, but failed, to hunt her down. Rosemarie Law brings a deeply informed portrayal of this daring, determined woman to the stage, giving her new life." -- Rosemary Klein, writer-editor-publisher.
"The Maryland Women's Heritage Center was pleased to host Rosemarie Law's living-history portrayal of the American spy, Virginia Hall. Since many of Hall's covert operations have been recently declassified, we now know that her daring efforts to support the British and French Resistance made a difference in defeating Hitler and his regime. Virginia Hall was inducted into the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame in 2019 with recognitions submitted by her professional national security peers. The Maryland Historical Society co-hosted our event and judging from the standing ovation and comments shared, Ms. Law's extensive research and portrayal was magnificently enjoyed. Following the actual performance, Ms. Law facilitated an engaging discussion of back-stories related to Virginia Hall. Guests left the performance wanting more information and many bought related books from the Historical Society's museum shop. We are very pleased with all aspects of Ms. Law's research, performance and audience engagement. We are looking forward to referring her production to other organizations supporting educational programs which reflect the broad range of contributions by telling "HERstories." Please contact me if you would like further information." -- Diana M. Bailey, MWHC Executive Director, 2019.
