Sydney Theatre Company presents
Switzerland

3 Nov 2014 to 29 Oct 2016

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, decided long ago that she didn’t like people, any people. She certainly doesn’t like the earnest, clean-cut young man sent from her publisher’s office, who turns up at her alpine retreat to convince her to write a final book. He can go to hell. But he’s wilier than she first supposes and their confrontation soon turns into a cat-and-mouse game – but who is cat and who mouse?

In Switzerland, Joanna Murray-Smith re-imagines the caustically witty novelist in her final years, a little old lady alone with her cats and her gun collection, giving her demons free reign and not giving a damn.

Building tension like the final chapters of one of Highsmith’s own thrillers, Switzerland was a hit for Sydney Theatre Company in 2014. This acclaimed two hander under the direction of Sarah Goodes comes to MTC with the stunning original cast of Sarah Peirse and Eamon Farren.
