THE THRILL OF LOVE by AMANDA WHITTINGTON

WEDNESDAY 11th to SATURDAY 14th OCTOBER 2017

UPSTAIRS @ THE CARRIAGEWORKS

The Thrill of Love, Amanda Whittington’s gripping new play, dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.
A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Then she meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes – but not in the way she imagines.
Why does their relationship end in murder? Why does she plead not guilty but offer no defence? Why does she show no remorse? And who is she trying to protect?
