The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe
From the award-winning creators of Orlando, Christmas Gothic, Austen’s Women, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, and The Time Machine.
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, 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.
Startling, sensual, sarcastic…anything but unremarkable
A fantastic performance… a great production… an absolute must
