The story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain. A fascinating and moving story. 

We’re currently performing it at the Sewell Barn Theatre, Constitution Hill, Norwich, Norfolk, UK.

I have the pleasure of playing Sylvia Shaw, doyenne of the fifties club scene, manageress of a the Court Club where Ruth once worked. From my research I can say that she was not a real person but rather a creation based on the type of women in those positions at the time. 

She has been a joy to develop – to the extent that I don’t want to let her go when the show ends!
