The Thrill of Love is a gripping play about Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain. 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. The girls work hard, play hard and dream of a movie-star life. Then she meets the wealthy, womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes – but not in the way she imagines.
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?
The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines. It is being presented by Tavonians Theatre Company as part of a tour of eight venues across west Devon and east Cornwall.
