The Quarry Theatre is working hard to minimise the risk of Coronavirus to our community. We have therefore taken the decision to cancel all performances, non-essential visits and events up until the end of June 2020. As such we are currently operating a ‘core business only’ policy and focussing on internal activities. Full refunds will be issued in the coming days. If you would like to donate your ticket to the company, do let us know.

From the award-winning creators of Christmas Gothic, Orlando, and The Time Machine.
August 5th, 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.
Written and Directed by Elton Townend Jones (Dalloway, Orlando, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, The Time Machine). Performed by Lizzie Wort (RSC’s The Magician’s Daughter, Animal Farm). Winner of the Three Weeks Editors Award.
