On 11th April 1955 Ruth Ellis shot and murdered her lover David Blakely and
after being found guilty was the last woman to be hanged in Britain.
Why was Ruth so quick to admit her guilt without offering a defence and who
supplied her with the gun? Amanda Whittington’s play cleverly looks at the facts while also exploring Ruth’s life and the lives of the women around her, who share Ruth’s dreams of wealth, status, stardom, and security.
Join Codsall Dramatic Society as we once again explore a play with deep societal implications and ask questions that will have you thinking and talking for days. We are proud to once again be presenting this play in association with Codsall Community Arts Festival.
