Ensemble Theatre brings Switzerland, a gripping psychological thriller from renowned Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith to the stage, from 3 May to 8 June. 

Inspired by the life of famous crime novelist Patricia Highsmith, author of the Mr Ripley series, Switzerland is “a tense, sharp-witted two-hander” (The Sydney Morning Herald) that blends the line between reality and fiction. 

Frigid winds of the Swiss Alps whistle past the cabin windows of best-selling crime author Patricia Highsmith as she retreats away from the world in her beloved fortress of solitude. Surrounded by a towering collection of books with only the company of cats, Patricia’s peace is disturbed when an intriguing young man from her publisher’s office knocks on the door. 

Full of cunning twists and high-stakes mind games, this thrilling night of mystery and intrigue is sure to leave audiences reeling long after they’ve left the theatre.
