About the show

Following a highly lauded season at Theatre Royal Bath’s Ustinov Studio, Joanna Murray-Smith’s play Switzerland comes to the West End. A gripping tale which imagines a meeting between novelist Patricia Highsmith and a mysterious visitor, the piece was crowned winner of Best New Australian Work at the Sydney Theatre Awards. Catch it at Ambassadors Theatre.

A recluse living in the Swiss Alps, the great writer Highsmith spends her days surrounded only by cats and books. Then a well turned out young gentleman arrives at her door, a man who seems very keen that she pen one more instalment about her famously manipulative character Tom Ripley. As the dawn breaks, it becomes apparent that this fellow has been hiding a far more sinister purpose.

Award-winning playwright and novelist Joanna Murray-Smith has written many works for the stage including Scenes from a Marriage, Three Little Words and The Female of the Species. She counts the 2004 Fringe First Award to her name, alongside many other accolades.

Highsmith is played by the award-decorated Phyllis Logan, perhaps best known for her role as Mrs Hughes (later Carson) in the ITV series Downton Abbey. Calum Finlay plays the part of New York publishing envoy Edward Ridgeway. Finlay’s theatre credits include the Almeida's Mary Stuart and Hamlet.

The play is directed by Lucy Bailey, the co-founder and former co-artistic director of The Print Room. Her recent directing credits include Witness for the Prosecution at London County Hall and Kenny Morgan at the Arcola Theatre.

Switzerland is as engaging and tightly woven as all the best thrillers. Don’t miss this clever two-hander at Ambassadors Theatre from 10 November 2018.
