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” ★★★★★
