Meanwhile, I have redesigned the logo for my upcoming production.
I have to give credit to Arthur Miller's play AFTER THE FALL for inspiring this version of my Norma Jeane play. I was flailing around for a year working on drafts until I read his play, with its undisguised representation of Monroe in the character of Maggie and came to this part (Quentin is the stand-in for Miller.)
MAGGIEWhy you wear those pants?
(He turns back to her, knowing what is coming.)I told you the seat is too tight.
QUENTINWell they made them too tight, but I can walk in them.
MAGGIEFags wear pants like that. I told you.
(She drinks again. It is so pathological he looks with amazed eyes.)They attract each other with their asses.
QUENTINYou calling me a fag now?
(She is very drunk.)Just I've known fags and some of them didn't even know themselves that they were. And I didn't know if you knew about that.
QUENTINThat's a hell of a way to reassure yourself Maggie.
(Staggering slightly)I'm allowed to say what I see...
This inspired me to make the play partly about a battle between Norma Jeane and the hospital psychiatrist who is a closeted homosexual. I thought it was fascinating that Miller portrayed Monroe commenting that she's known gay men who did not know they were gay.
