A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there is more than a drink on offer. The girls work 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, Amanda Whittington’s gripping play, dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of nightclubs where there is more than a drink on offer.
