Theatre: The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe

If you’ve missed the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd as much as we have, you’ll be delighted to know that live theatre is back with a bang in Bedford, with some exciting programmes of events at venues throughout the town.

This month, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe comes to the Quarry Theatre, from the award-winning creators of Christmas Gothic, Orlando, and The Time Machine.

It’s 5 August 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.

The critically acclaimed show is written and directed by Elton Townend Jones (Dalloway, Orlando, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, The Time Machine) and performed by Lizzie Wort (RSC’s The Magician’s Daughter, Animal Farm).  “A simply stunning production” ★★★★★
