Elmwood Players

Christchurch theatre group Elmwood Players are excited to announce their next major production for this year, the adult drama The Thrill Of Love by Amanda Whittington, and directed by Garry Thomas.

Fame comes but not in the way she imagines...

The facts are not in dispute. On 11 April 1955, Ruth Ellis shot and murdered her lover. Ellis was found guilty and became the last woman to be hanged in Britain. But why was she so keen to admit her guilt, and so loath to offer any defence, even refusing to name - until too late - the person who gave her the loaded gun? Amanda (“Be My Baby”, “Amateur Girl”) Whittington's play starts with a siren image of Ellis in satin underwear looking like Marilyn Monroe. But like much in this work, the surface image is a mere deception.
