Patricia Highsmith, - author of Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Carol - has retired to beautiful, neutral Switzerland, and just wants to be left alone with her cats, pet snails and small but rare arms collection. But here comes a young emissary from her NYC publisher who wants to squeeze just one more 'Ripley' out of her. And there the witty barbs, the mystery, the chilling suspense begin!
"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 chilled and gripped, amused and seduced by this pitch-perfect psychological thriller."
- THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
"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."
- THE AUSTRALIAN
