Misfit is based entirely on an actual letter written by screen siren Marilyn Monroe after her forced confinement to a psychiatric clinic in 1961. The private and revealing thoughts of a Hollywood legend are revealed as she recounts her harrowing experience. A copy of this letter recently sold at auction for an undisclosed amount.

Baby Gumm Productions presented Darren Stewart-Jones' stage production of Misfit at the London One Act Festival and the 2017 Hamilton Fringe Festival, featuring Paige Locke as Marilyn Monroe.

The piece has been adapted into a short film entitled Misfit M, to be released in 2019, also starring Paige Locke as Marilyn.
