The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe
From the award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, Christmas Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Time Machine, Orlando, and Jane Eyre: An Autobiography.
August 5th, 1962: Monroe as we’ve never seen her before: alone in her bedroom, in dressing gown and underwear; no glitz, no glamour, no masks. Overdosed on pills, the woman behind the icon unravels her remarkable life, taking us back through the memories of her closest relationships. Repeatedly stalked by a mysterious caller, the Hollywood icon tells all (Joe DiMaggio, Clark Gable, Arthur Miller, her mother – it’s all here), revealing a biting intelligence and an imperfect body, leading us in real time to the very moment of her death.
Written and Directed by Elton Townend Jones (Dalloway, Orlando, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, The Time Machine). Performed by Lizzie Wort (RSC’s The Magician’s Daughter, Animal Farm). Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.
Lizzie Wort has previously appeared in Beauty and the Beast, A Christmas Carol and a one-woman version of Animal Farm at Trinity, and has also worked as a puppeteer and in many children’s shows at top London & UK venues.
