“A gripping psychological thriller…has you on the edge of your seat.” - Sunday Telegraph

Celebrated crime writer, Patricia Highsmith is living hidden away in the Swiss Alps and refusing to contact her publishers who are urging her to write another in the best-selling Ripley series. A mysterious young man appears unannounced. Will her love of fictional murders become a dangerous reality? What first appears to be a standard cat-and-mouse game soon becomes a dance to the death.

Who is the cat and who is the mouse? And… who will make it out of of Switzerland alive. A sharp, gripping and sometimes very witty two-hander exploring the final chapter in the life of Patricia Highsmith. (The Talented Mr Ripley, Strangers on a Train, Carol).

“If you're going to see just one play this year make it Switzerland. It crackles with remarkable insight, humour and tension.” - Perth Arts Live

“Funny, chilling and thrilling.” - Perthnow

“Murray-Smith’s writing is brilliant. The dialogue is razor sharp and quick witted…” - Perthnow
