Jessica Osorio announces her cast for the gripping psychological thriller, Switzerland by Joanna Murray-Smith.
Somewhere in the Swiss Alps, sometime in the 90s, Patricia Highsmith, queen of the thriller, has managed to escape from both her fans and her publisher. Surrounded by her collection of books and antique weaponry, her cats and her cigarettes, Patricia enjoys her seclusion until the day a young man arrives. He claims to have been sent by her New York publisher to persuade her to write one final novel featuring the master manipulator, Tom Ripley. But as day breaks over the mountains, it becomes clear that the young man has a far more sinister mission in mind.
“We are looking forward to starting work on this beautifully written, challenging and thought-provoking play, and finding the nuances of the script and the characters. Caroline has performed in many plays at South London Theatre, most recently Night Heron by Jez Butterworth, and Joe is new to SLT, last performing at Bromley Little Theatre in Shakespeare’s A Comedy of Errors.”
