‘All About Marilyn’ in Suffolk

Suffolk playwright Lorena Cenci has spoken about her new play, All About Marilyn – to be staged at the Jerwood DanceHouse, Ipswich, by 4th Wall Productions on October 2-6 – in an interview with the East Anglian Daily Times.

“I realised that there had to be three different Marilyns – the young Norma Jeane, Zelda Zonk, the Marilyn we know from the screen, and the older, quieter Marilyn: the real Marilyn.

Set in hospital, the older Marilyn has these alternate Marilyns visit her in her mind. Her story is presented in a way that reflects the fractured nature of her own writing.”
