The Place, 17 Duke’s Rd, London, WC1H 9PY

 

In a work of high drama and passionate lyricism, Tom Randle’s exciting new opera ‘Love Me To Death’ explores the intense personal conflict and wide-reaching themes highlighted in the final years of Ruth Ellis, the last woman hanged in Britain. Randle’s intelligently fluid writing, Nikki Racklin’s punchy, raw libretto, and a star cast, including Gillian Keith as Ruth Ellis, Charne Rochford as her lover, David Blakeley, and James Cleverton as Ruth’s ‘alternate lover’, make this a must-see event.
