THE THRILL OF LOVE
by Amanda Whittington
21 – 30 October 2021 at 8pm; Matinée: Saturday 30 October at 2.30pm
A hostess in the West End 'gentlemen’s clubs’, Ruth Ellis works hard, plays hard and dreams of a movie-star life. Yet in 1955, the self-styled ‘blonde bombshell’ is convicted of murder and becomes the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain.
Ruth’s crime is re-examined in the light of the society she lived in and the experiences that led to her shooting her lover. Through the eyes of film noir Detective Inspector Gale – and the haunting voice of Billie Holiday – The Thrill of Love explores the enigma of Ruth Ellis: a woman whose short but explosive life still resonates.

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amidst the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, Minari shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.
This much acclaimed film from Lee Isaac Chung, Minari offers an intimate and heart-wrenching portrait of family and assimilation in 1980s America.

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
by Joseph Kesselring
2 – 11 December 2021 at 8pm; Matinée: Saturday 11 December at 2.30pm
Tickets on sale 21 October
Originally performed in 1941 and made famous by the film starring Cary Grant, Arsenic and Old Lace was one of the first and funiest comedies of multiple murders, putting black comedy truly back on the theatrical map. It tells the story of two charming and gentle old ladies who poison their lonely, elderly lodgers in order to save them from the sorrows of this world – however, not everybody shares their views!
Described as an inspired and delightful concoction, combining the charm and ingenuity of an Agatha Christie Whodunit but having a sharper satirical perspective.
