The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe

October 9 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


From the award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, Christmas Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Time Machine, Orlando, and Jane Eyre: An Autobiography.

August 5, 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.

Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.
