The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe

The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe

at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury

From the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Austen’s Women, Dalloway, Orlando, and I, Elizabeth.

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.
