THE THRILL OF LOVE BY AMANDA WHITTINGTON
We are holding open auditions this month for its March 2020 production – The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington. A hugely popular and gripping drama, the play dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look behind the headlines.
A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth works in the kind of nightclubs where there’s more than just a drink on offer, and dreams of a movie-star life. When she meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver, fame comes her way – but not quite how she imagined. 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?
Director Tim Greathead is holding a play-reading and familiarisation session on Wednesday 13th November at 7.30pm for you to learn more about the play, the characters, and his vision for the production.
If you decide you’d like to go ahead and audition, sessions will be held the following week, on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st November, both at 7.30pm at Studio Theatre, Ashley Road.
Tim is looking to find a cast of four women and one man, and he’s also hoping to include some smoky, late-night-style solo singing (Billie Holiday type numbers), by the cast or additional company members.
For any queries, please telephone Tim on 07968 129082.
