From the award-winning creators of Orlando, The Time Machine, Christmas Gothic, and I, Elizabeth – Dyad Productions.
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.
