The Thrill of Love
16-20 October 2018
The true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain.
“It’s obvious when I shot him I intended to kill him”.
In 1955 night-club hostess Ruth Ellis shot her lover six times. Why did their relationship end in murder? Why does she show no remorse? Who gave her the gun? This brilliant play explores the seedy post-war nightclubs, the sexual exploitation and the life and death of an “ordinary girl” who inadvertently helped to abolish the death penalty in Britain.
