The Thrill of Love ~ 24th – 27th April 2019

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.  The character of Jack Gale, a London Detective instigates an investigation in the hope of providing some defence for Ellis’s 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.
