2014 STA Best New Australian Work
Joanna Murray-Smith’s acclaimed tale of cat and mouse comes to MTC featuring the stunning original Sydney Theatre Company team.
Patricia Highsmith, best-selling author of The Talented Mr. Ripley, is living as a recluse somewhere in the Swiss alps. So when an unwelcome young man is sent from her publisher’s office to convince her to write a final book, their confrontation soon turns into a cat-and-mouse game – but who is cat and who mouse?
In Switzerland, Joanna Murray-Smith builds tension like the final chapters of one of Highsmith’s own thrillers. This acclaimed two-hander is directed by Sarah Goodes with the stunning cast of Sarah Peirse and Eamon Farren, with design by Michael Scott-Mitchell, lighting by Nick Schlieper and composition by Steve Francis.
A Sydney Theatre Company Production. The Australian premiere production of Switzerland was generously supported by Kim Williams AM and Catherine Dovey.
A gripping psychological thriller. Creeps up on you and then has you on the edge of your seat.
The Sunday Telegraph
Two outstanding performances.
The Daily Review
Scintillating, mesmerising, sexy, and more than a bit heady.
