“I like murder. I’ve committed thousands. With delight. Every time I write one, I’m plunging in the knife.”
The great thriller writer Patricia Highsmith – tough cookie, alcoholic, gun collector – is visited in her isolated Swiss home by a representative of her publisher. At least, that’s who he says he is, but as this mesmerizing cat-and-mouse game unfolds, layer by psychological layer, the author realizes she may have finally met her match when it comes to cunning – and menace.
“A truly great play.” – Daily Review
Featuring Ash Chandler-Pease and Joanne Rowland. Directed by Coralee Draginda.
