Cathy Downes and Simon Leary.

Celebrated crime writer, Patricia Highsmith is living hidden away in the Swiss Alps and refusing to contact her publishers who are urging her to write another in the best-selling Ripley series. A mysterious young man appears unannounced. Will her love of fictional murders become a dangerous reality? What first appears to be a standard cat-and-mouse game soon becomes a dance to the death. Who is the cat and who is the mouse? And ... who will make it out of Switzerland alive?

A chilling and sometimes hilarious two-hander exploring the final chapter in the life of Patricia Highsmith. (Carol, The Talented Mr Ripley, Strangers on a Train)

Starring Catherine Downes and Simon Leary
Directed by Susan Wilson and with music by Gareth Farr

Catherine Downes will have a question and answer session after this performance.
