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.
