The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe

This show was originally scheduled for 27th March 2020. All tickets for that date remain valid. 

From Dyad Productions.

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, Hyde, her mother – 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 (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.

★★★★★ ‘A simply stunning production’ (Edinburgh Reporter)

★★★★★ ’Superlative’ (Remotegoat)

★★★★★ ’Spellbinding’ (The Carrick)

★★★★★ ‘Outstanding’ (One4Review)

★★★★ ‘Startling, sensual, sarcastic…anything but unremarkable’ (Three Weeks)
