An attractive young man interrupts acclaimed novelist Patricia Highsmith at her reclusive home. When might the publishers expect the next anticipated addition to her sinister “Mr. Ripley” series? The author’s real-life dry humor and macabre imagination meet with this mysterious character’s own darkly seductive agenda in this gripping new play—leaving you breathless through its very final chapter. In this original Geffen Playhouse commission, Joanna Murray-Smith (The Female of the Species), with her unique brand of humor and mystery, brings to life this literary giant best known for Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley.

A Geffen Playhouse commission funded by the Edgerton Foundation.
