“The Trial of Dali” is a comedic play set in 1948 Spain that depicts the legal troubles of the flamboyant Surrealist, artist Salvador Dali. Dali and his wife and muse Gala, return from the U.S. to Dali’s small home town of Figueres, in his native Spain, at a time when Dali is broken financially and artistically (although he would never admit it). Upon arrival, Dali is served with a summons to a trial prosecuted by a vengeful attorney bent on proving Dali’s art has violated the moral code. Ultimately to win his freedom, prove his relevance as an artist, and save his marriage, Dali must defend himself by defending his art. Be ready to “get surreal,” in this humorous, satirical play.


June 15, 23 and 28, 2019. The Seven Year Itch, starring Polish actress Monika Ekiert as Marylin Monroe.  The performances are at Hollywood's McCadden Theatre on Saturday June 15 at 8pm, Sunday June 23 at 1pm and Friday June 28 at 7pm.
ADDRESS: McCadden Place Theatre, 1157 North McCadden Place, Los Angeles, CA 90038

It’s one of the most iconic images in screen history – Marilyn Monroe in that white dress in The Seven Year Itch. The much loved film was adapted from this highly acclaimed play by George Axelrod. Polish actress Monika Ekiert steps into the role of ‘The Girl’ and CNN and BBC personality Sandro Monetti plays the hapless husband in this hilarious and charming romantic comedy.
Produced in association with Jason Haigh-Ellery, Bruce B Lee and Big Screen Entertainment Group.
