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 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
