A witty, serpentine thriller from one of our greatest and most popular playwrights.


Presented by State Theatre Company

By Joanna Murray-Smith

Stage and screen legend Sandy Gore (Footfalls) returns to the Company to play one of the literary world’s most divisive and compelling figures – Patricia Highsmith, the brilliant mind behind The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train.

A hit when it premiered at Sydney Theatre Company in 2015, Joanna Murray Smith’s (The Female of the Species) play places Highsmith front and centre in a story that may or may not be of her own making. A semi-recluse in Switzerland, she is visited by a young man from her publishing house ostensibly on a mission to persuade her to write one last novel. But as the sun sets and rises again over the Swiss Alps, it becomes apparent that the charming young stranger is on a far more sinister mission…

True to Highsmith’s iconic style, there are multiple twists and turns as the enthralling plot unfolds. This is total edge-of-your-seat theatre!
