Author and performer Stephanie Ridings releases her new stage show this March: an investigation into the continuing use of the death penalty in America and the phenomenon of British women who fall in love with men on death row.

Having travelled to Texas in search of answers, Ridings explores the moral conundrum of capital punishment, the grim reality of the death cells, the appeals process and even gains a pen-pal in Jonny, a convicted murderer.

It’s a darkly humorous blend of documentary and dramatic recreation that has gained rave reviews from critics.

Comedienne Fanny Bryce, a stage struck young lady with ambition and an incredible voice, is determined to make it big as a star.

Fanny soon falls in love with Nick Arnstein, a gambling man with a soft side.

But Nick, who seems ignorant of her affection, is always leaving town on a dubious business venture. Can Fanny get all she ever wanted?
