The Late Marilyn Monroe day of a person’s life

Blue Orange Theatre, 118 Gt Hampton St, Birmingham B18 6AD

£11 Member, £13 Guest

On August 5th 1962 the world awoke to the news that Marilyn Monroe, the biggest movie star of that time, had died at the age of just 36. But what really happened? And what was she like behind closed doors? Questions we’ll probably never really know the answer to. But what if we could get close? Drug addiction, depression, psychological issues, sexual exploitation… issues as prominent today as they were over 50 years ago. This is not a biographical piece. It’s merely one day of a person’s life. Their final day…This will not be the Marilyn you’ve seen before.
