Fancy an evening of gripping true-life drama, with murder at its very heart? Then book to see “The Thrill of Love” by Amanda Whittington at 7.30pm from Wednesday 1st July to Saturday 4th July 2015, at The Bear Pit Theatre, Rother Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6LU. The play focusses on Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, for the murder of her lover. Why was Ellis so keen to admit her guilt and not offer any defence? And why did she refuse to name, until it was too late, the person who gave her the loaded gun?
