SwitzerlandPhyllis Logan, well-known for her role as Mrs Hughes in ITV's Downton Abbey, stars as reclusive author Patricia Highsmith, famed for writing The Talented Mr Ripley, Strangers On A Train and The Price of Salt. Set in 1995, Switzerland tells the story of the writer, disturbed when a polished young man turns up at her Alpine retreat to persuade her to pen one final Tom Ripley novel. Lucy Bailey directs the West End transfer of Joanna Murray-Smith's taut two-hander, which was originally staged at Bath Theatre Royal. Please note: performances contain smoking.

 

About Ambassadors Theatre

From the outside, it appears impossible that an entire West End theatre could be fitted into this two-storey Soho corner. The Ambassadors is among the most notable achievements of the great theatrical architect W.G.R. Sprague; not only is there a medium-sized auditorium, cheerfully over-decorated, but the whole Louis XVI interior feels spacious and airy. More about Ambassadors Theatre
