The Attic Players present ‘The Thrill of Love’ by Amanda Whittington. This is the true story of Ruth Ellis and her tragic descent into despair, culminating in the shooting of her lover David Blakely in April 1955. Ruth Ellis was found guilty of murder, and was hanged on July 13th 1955, the last woman to be executed in Britain.
The cast and crew have studied a huge amount of information about the case, alongside the script, which is particularly stylised and departs from convention, and have worked hard to give our audience an authentic perspective of the period as well as the facts. We hope that our production will encourage some thoughtful insight into what was a tragedy at the time, and still causes debate today.
