The story is told of the Hollywood star Diane Cook - and that is none other than Marilyn Monroe. All the characters who appear are easy to deduce from Monroe's biography. Nevertheless, it is not only a play about America's sex symbol of the 50s, it is a play about "fame", about glamour, about career, about the myth of being a star - and about who earns from it and what it costs: life.
