Amanda Whittington's play dramatises the infamous true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain in 1955 after being convicted of shooting her lover, David Blakely, in cold blood.

The play seeks to look behind the headlines, into the true life of Ruth, a divorcee with a young child, working in nightclubs - a work hard, play hard movie-star life. Detective Jack Gale follows her story from the beginning, hoping to piece together the motive behind why she murdered David and, more importantly, who she might be protecting.

On stage at the end of February/beginning of March 2018.
"It was obvious when I shot him, that I intended to kill him"
