From Dyad Productions (Female Gothic, Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve). 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. 

★★★★★ ‘A simply stunning production… one of the must see performances of the festival. ’ Edinburgh Reporter

★★★★★ ’Spellbinding’ The Carrick

★★★★★ ‘Outstanding’ One4Review

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

★★★★ ‘A fantastic performance… a great production… an absolute must’ Broadway Baby
