The Thrill of Love

17th - 20th October 2018

(by Amanda Whittington, an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books)

Set in the 1950s, we enter the shady world of the London night club scene, accompanied by a live jazz band and singer. We watch the tragic story of Ruth Ellis, and those who knew her, unfold.

Was she, at twenty-eight years old, an unfeeling, brassy blonde murderer or a victim of her time?

This is a moody, film noir drama directed by Val Robinson and Pat McLoughlin, who brought you the sell-out "Calendar Girls" in 2013 (Photographs by Robert Nicklin).
