Paramedic Steps Into Estranged Father Role For One Night With Marilyn at Newport’s Dolman Theatre

The PT Rose play, One Night with Marilyn comes to Newport’s Dolman Theatre as a rehearsed read-through event on November 4 and features a Paramedic from the Welsh Ambulance Service amongst its talented cast.

Phil Davies is married with two children and has been a Paramedic with the Welsh Ambulance Service for 24 years. A member of Off-Centre Theatre, Monmouth’s leading theatre group, Phil won the Best Actor award in 2017 at the Hereford County One Act Drama Festival for his portrayal of Barrie in the Peter Quilter comedy ‘Duets’.

In One Night with Marilyn, based on true-life events which takes place in February 1961, when Marilyn Monroe was sectioned by her psychiatrist Dr. Marianne Kris to New York’s Payne Whitney Clinic, Phil takes the role of Marilyn’s estranged father, Stanley.

Phil feels privileged to be involved with such a group of talented actors in performing PT Rose’s powerfully written account of Marilyn Monroe’s final years. At the tender age of 10, Phil watched Marilyn in her classic role in ‘Some Like it Hot’, after which she became his very first ‘film star crush’.
