Switzerland (New England Premiere)
Written by Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed by James Barry
June 18 – 28
Patricia Highsmith, misanthropic master of psychological thrillers and author of The Talented Mr. Ripley, lives and writes and in the shadow of the Swiss Alps. When a charming visitor arrives, he may not be who he first appears in this twisting two-hander. James Barry, seen in many roles on the Town Hall stage (The Aliens, The Night Alive, Sister Play) and award-winning director of last season’s Working at Berkshire Theatre Group, makes his CTC directorial debut.
“[Switzerland] grows with intrigue as it moves forward, pulling back the layers of its two characters to reveal their true selves-neither being who they initially appeared to…and the result is gripping.” (Entertainment Weekly)
