The Thrill Of Love

Bancroft Players

Friday 3rd to Saturday 4th November 2017, in the Main Theatre

by Amanda Whittington

directed by Jon Brown


A gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at 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?
