Ruth was a divorcee with a young child to care for. She 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. Ruth then 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?
- she plead not guilty but offer no defence?
- she show no remorse?
Who is she trying to protect?
The Thrill of Love is the first play in our 2019-2020 Season
