Telstars journey with “Marilyn” began with an invitation to perform a rehearsed reading of this new work by PT Rose to an invited audience. There have since been readings on 5 continents and it continues to grow.

Unknown to her many millions of fans in February 1961 Marilyn Monroe was sectioned by her psychiatrist Dr Marianne Kris to the Payne Whitney Clinic, the psychiatric division of Cornell University New York. Marilyn was under the impression she was being sent for some rest and recuperation by her trusted doctor. Marilyn was exhausted after the stressful filming schedule of ‘The Misfits’, its lukewarm reception and her fresh separation from Arthur Miller. In addition, Marilyn had set alarm bells ringing amongst her friends and psychiatrist by talking of ‘ending it all’.

She had often been to such places previously to visit her mother who had been confined to mental institutions for many years and was a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic. Marilyn herself had a growing complex that she too was going insane and friends noticed that occasionally she behaved as if pre-occupied by ‘voices’ she claimed to be speaking to her.

Upon arrival at her ‘room’ in the clinic a dishevelled unwell looking Marilyn was given a hospital gown, then left alone in her locked cell.
