Extended to June 1Jeff Church and Heidi Van are teaming up for Marilyn/God at the Fishtank
A one-woman powerhouse that looks at how America's obsession with fame and beauty shaped a single woman's rise to- and death from- stardom.
Heidi Van and Jeff Church (Producing Artistic Director at the Coterie) surveyed many contemporary solo plays about Marilyn Monroe.
We settled on 'Marilyn/God by Rosary' Hartel O'Neill because it is more than a bio-play - it delves into the mind of Marilyn and challenges her, interrogates her and forces her to hold a mirror to herself and see the past she has left behind," says Heidi Van, actor and Fishtank Artistic Director.
“I am attracted to the piece because is it more of psychological thriller than a vanity play. It is extremely active - it’s an “in the moment” exploration and very visceral and physical. As an actor I am completely amped-up for it as well as utterly terrified, which seems to be the place to live.”
