WIN! WIN! WIN! A PAIR OF TICKETS TO A SHOW B edford Drama Company has a fantastic season of shows coming up and OVL readers are in for a chance to win a pair of tickets to a show of their choice. Choose from one of the following upcoming productions: The Thrill of Love, 16-20 October 2018 In 1955, Ruth Ellis was the last woman in Britain to be hanged. A hostess in the seedy nightclubs of London, she shot her lover six times in broad daylight. Why did she do it? The Thrill of Love, based on documentary evidence, is a gripping tale of vice, murder and obsession. It’s also a story of a woman trying to make a life in a world where the dice were loaded against her. Death by Design, 20-23 February 2019 What happens when you mix the wit of Noël Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife, Sorel, an actress, flee London after a disastrous opening night. When one of their guests is murdered, it is left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime. Bonnie and Clyde: the musical, 9-13 April 2019 With music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Don Black, the musical centres on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the ill- fated lovers and outlaws whose story has been infamous since they achieved folk hero status during the Great Depression. The “non-traditional score” combines rockabilly, blues and gospel music. Bedford Drama Company presents this musical along with ShowCo Bedford. *dates and performances may be subject to change OVL brings you FANTASTIC prizes every issue!
