Died Blondes
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Marilyn Monroe, movie star. Ruth Ellis, murderer. Infamous women. Famous last words re-imagined by award-winning writer Joan Ellis as she transports you from Hollywood to Holloway. What secrets did JFKs mistress, Marilyn Monroe whisper down the phone to ex-husband Joe DiMaggio the night she died? How could Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, justify to lover, David Blakely her reason for shooting him? Piecing together the latest theories, Joan Ellis enables two so-called dumb blondes to find their voice. 'Brilliant' (audience review). Electrifying (Dom Kureen, Ventnor Fringe). Imaginative profound (IsleofWightLiteraryFestival.com).
