About the Play

Directed by Sarah Norris

Starring Douglas Sills (Tony Nominee)

Original Song by David Holcenberg

In the war years of the 1940s, two young actresses, Norma Jeane and Beth, pound the same Hollywood pavement and share similar aspirations.  They will become infamous by other names, one as Marilyn Monroe and the other as the Black Dahlia, the most notorious unsolved murder victim of her time.  


Deception tracks the trajectories of these Tinseltown luminaries, culminating in an imagined meeting between the ladies in the Black Dahlia’s final hours. An adaptable and engaging entertainer plays host while desperately searching for his missing wife.

Part of New Light Theater Project's Spotlight Series
