CURRENT CASTING OPPORTUNITIES

The Late Marilyn Monroe by Darren Haywood

Taking Chances in association with Blue Orange Arts presents

A brand new play about a day in the life of Marilyn Monroe. Her final day.

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?

Drug addiction, depression, psychological issues, sexual exploitation… issues as prominent today as they were over 50 years ago.

This will not be the Marilyn you’ve seen before.
