Marilyn’s story – by Marilyn

Marilyn’s story – by Marilyn

FOLLOWING a successful West End run, a hit one-woman show about movie icon Marilyn Monroe is heading to Stratford-upon-Avon this weekend.

Marilyn Monroe

Presented by Breakthrough Theatre, this show gives audiences a rare glimpse into Marilyn’s troubled – and not-so-private – life.

It stops off at The Attic Theatre, in Bridgefoot, as part of a nationwide tour across 11 venues, on Friday and Saturday (March 15th and 16th)!

Marilyn’s image and persona is famous worldwide but why was she so iconic? Did people ever really know the real girl behind the mask? Or is that the reason for the ongoing fascination? This playful and poignant play is Marilyn’s story, told by her – alone in her dressing room.

Marilyn, which premiered at the Blue Orange Theatre in July 2017, made its West End transfer to Leicester Square Theatre at the beginning of this year, where it was met with rave reviews.

Founder of Breakthrough Theatre and star of the show, actress Danielle J Gearing said: “We are very proud of what a success this show has become and I am loving getting to put that Blonde wig on and share this fascinating women’s story with audiences around the country! We’ve had such an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences so far and cannot wait to bring it to the beautiful town of Stratford upon Avon!”
