THE THRILL OF LOVE
Directed by Susie Bundy
‘The Thrill of Love’ Amanda Whittington’s gripping new play – dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.
The facts are not in dispute. On 11 April 1955, Ruth Ellis shot and murdered her lover, David Blakely, outside a Hampstead pub.
Ellis was found guilty and became the last woman to be hanged in Britain. Why was she so keen to admit her guilt and so loath to offer any defence.
Why does she show no remorse and who is she trying to protect?
