February 11, 1846. Eliza R. Snow enters her lonely attick room the night before she is to flee her home for the haven of Winter Quarters. Eliza packs for the journey, but finds herself doubting her decision to go west with the Saints. As the night progresses and Eliza's trunk grows full, she explores her life, faith, and God's purpose for her.
Eliza and I, based on the play A High and Glorious Place, pays special tribute to LDS women and more specifically to Eliza Roxcy Snow Smith. Like many of the early pioneers, Eliza endured trial after trial with a faithful heart and an eye constantly toward Zion.
With a keen awareness of Eliza's feelings and a mastery of language, writer and actress Elizabeth Hansen relates the story of Eliza's life and the challenges she faced as a woman pioneer and as a wife to both Joseph Smith and later Brigham Young. From this portrait, an inspiring woman emerges.
