The Thrill of Love

.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?
