THE PRINCESS & THE SHOWGIRL

An imagined meeting between Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana. Thick & Tight examine their lives from within and without, from personal and public memory. The work dramatises the similarities between the lives of these two women, the sadness of their childhood, the vast fame, the hounding by press, the very public love affairs and the mysterious unsolved deaths.

 

With guest appearances by Thom Shaw, Josh Spear, Owen Ridley-DeMonick and Claudia Palazzo. Thanks to Gary Clarke, Dan Thomas, Impermanence and Sheila Hay.

Commissioned by Wilton's Music Hall Strike! Festival 2016
