Monday, 2nd October: Ruth Ellis’s Last Letter & Marilyn Monroe's Last Words

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

Stage debut of a duo of monologues that take us into the minds of two iconic women from the last century in the final moments of their lives.

Ruth Ellis, murderer.Marilyn Monroe, movie star.

Infamous women. Famous last words, re-imagined.

In 1955 Ruth Ellis was the last woman to be hanged in the UK, for the murder of her lover.

In 1962 Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her Los Angeles home from a barbiturates overdose.

Written and performed by award-winning writer Joan Ellis, these new works piece together the latest theories creating two dramatic monologues which enable these so called dumb blondes to find their voice moments before they die.
