Subject: Something Something Theatre audition for 'Switzerland.' Actress age 50+ needed.


Something Something Theatre is looking for an actress age 50+ to portray the author Patricia Highsmith in their production of 'Switzerland,' by Joanna Murray-Smith, running April 25 - May 12.  Rehearsals begin in early or mid-March.


This role is an actor's dream.


Auditions will be held on February 3rd at 6 PM, at 3202 E. Waverly St. (a residence near Country Club and Pima).  Please bring a headshot and resume, and be prepared to do cold readings from the script.  Contact director Whitney at or 520.780.7071 with any further questions.


'Switzerland' is a critically acclaimed, darkly comedic thriller, speculating on the final days of Highsmith's life.  It has never before been produced in Tucson and we are so excited to bring it to the stage!


Author Patricia Highsmith hates everyone and just wants to be left alone. An emissary from her publisher arrives to beg her to write one more sequel to The Talented Mr. Ripley…and he turns out to be more than a match for her iron will.

"Switzerland is arguably Murray-Smith's best play yet, and certainly one of her most entertaining. The playwright's familiar strong suits: her barbed wit and effortless gift for verbal sparring, her feminist lens...combine to form an unbeatable hand. Whether you're a mad Highsmith fan, or you've never heard of her, you'll be c'hilled and gripped, amused and seduced by this pitch-perfect psychological thriller."

"Murray-Smith's witty two-hander morphs into a larger study of death and the end of imagining...a diverting, scintillating duel with words and small daggers."
