The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe
Wed 18 Mar 2020 To Thu 19 Mar 2020
Monroe as we’ve never seen her before: alone in her bedroom, in dressing gown and slippers; no glitz, no glamour, no masks. Overdosed on pills, the woman behind the icon unravels her remarkable life and bares all, revealing a biting intelligence, a frustrated talent and an imperfect body. This stark confessional (DiMaggio, Gable, Miller – it’s all here) offers a radical interpretation of this Hollywood legend and leads us, in real time, to the very moment of her death. Written and directed by Elton Townend Jones. ★★★★★ ‘Superlative’ (RemoteGoat) ★★★★★ ‘Simply stunning’ (Edinburgh Reporter) From the award-winning creators of Orlando, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, The Time Machine, and Austen’s Women.
