Sadly, we had to cancel our spring production this year. Much of the preparatory work had been done and rehearsals were under way prior to the Covid-19 lockdown. So, health restrictions permitting, we will be staging it as our first planned production of 2021.
The Thrill of Love
By Amanda WhittingtonProvisional dates: 15th to 20th March 2021
Directed by Ben Maytham
A hostess in the West End ‘gentlemen’s clubs’, Ruth Ellis works hard, plays hard and dreams of a movie-star life. Yet in 1955, the self-styled ‘blonde bombshell’ is convicted of murder and becomes the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain.
Ruth’s crime is re-examined in the light of the society she lived in and the experiences that led to her shooting her lover. Through the eyes of film noir Detective Inspector Gale – and the haunting voice of Billie Holiday – The Thrill of Love explores the enigma of Ruth Ellis: a woman whose short but explosive life still resonates.
