*** ALL TAKINGS FROM OUR PERFORMANCE ON THURSDAY 5 MARCH WILL BE DONATED TO THE BUSHFIRE WILDLIFE APPEAL **
Switzerland is a metaphysical thriller set in the secluded home of Patricia Highsmith, famous author of the Tom Ripley novels. When meek and mild Edward Ridgeway is sent by Highsmith’s publisher to coax a new Ripley novel out of her, Patricia takes him in in spite of her usual reservations. As the two of them begin to flesh out the new book a power struggle plays out between them.
Written by Australian playwright Joanna Murray Smith, Switzerland is a play that blends reality and fiction and explores the plight of the author struggling to stand outside the shadow of their most famous creation.
