‘The Thrill of Love’ by Amanda Whittington

24th-27th April 2019.  Directed by Carla Stokes.

Auditions: Monday 19th November, 7:30pm

The Thrill Of Love is Amanda Whittington’s take on the story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain in 1955. Whittington looks into Ruth Ellis’s background which perhaps offers some insight into the lack of remorse for her actions.

Using music and press releases from the era, this play encompasses the atmospheric and dubious world of gentleman’s clubs in London and the girls who frequented them, often with devastating results.
The cast is as follows:
Ruth Ellis: 20s
Jack Gale (club owner): 40s/50s
Sylvia Shaw (club hostess): 30s/40s
Vickie Martin (Ruth’s Friend): 20s
Doris Judd (Charwoman): 40s
