'Marilyn Monroe-inspired' shows for town centre venue

THEATRE goers are set for a double dose of drama from the legendary playwright Arthur Miller.

Two-Way Mirror, due to run at the Doncaster Little Theatre later this month, consists of two one-act plays based on the theme of relationships, and is said to have been based on Mr Miller's relationship with his one-time wife, Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe, and his subsequent abandonment of her.

The first play, Elegy for a Lady, directed by Rachel Rollin, is a story about a man seeking a gift for his dying mistress.

The second, Some Kind of Love Story, is described by director Jon Wright as a detective story with a twist.

He said: "This is my first time directing for The Little Theatre.

"I am really excited to be working with a talented cast on a fantastic play."

The production opens at the venue on King Street on Monday January 24 and runs to Saturday January 29.

Arthur Miller is well known for his play The Crucible, as well as his marriage to Marilyn Monroe.
