Switzerland tickets are now available for the West End transfer to London’s Ambassadors Theatre November 2018 - January 2019.

Switzerland had a critically acclaimed UK premiere the Theatre Royal Bath's Ustinov Studio earlier this year. Phyllis Logan, who starred as housekeeper Mrs Hughes in Downtown Abbey, reprises her role as queen of the thriller and eccentric author Patricia Highsmith at the Ambassadors Theatre.

This thriller new play centres on the story of Patricia Highsmith, author of the best-selling series of books featuring Tom Ripley. Sharp and anti-social, Highsmith had problems with alcohol, cigarettes and people. By the mid-nineties, Highsmith is living in seclusion in the Swiss Alps surrounded by her pets and cut off from the rest of the world when a visitor arrives.

A dashing young man turns up at her door, sent by her publisher in New York to convince her to write one last Ripley novel. But as the sun rises over the Alpine mountains, it becomes clear that the charming stranger is set on a far more sinister mission.

Tickets for Switzerland in London are sure to sell quickly so book now to avoid disappointment.

'Phyllis Logan ... completely wonderful. A real stab of class. Lucy Bailey's razor-sharp direction'  Mail on Sunday
'Very well acted. Calum Finlay impeccable. A teasing metaphysical thriller'  Guardian

Moira Lumby9th January

Great show - the time just passed so quickly.

James Brookes6th January

Slow to start, picked up in the second half. Very convincing setting and cast, great little theatre. Would recommend it.

Martin Barber6th January

Gripping drama and superb performances.

Jennifer DiRollo5th January

This was a superb piece of theatre. Both actors just got even better as the play progressed. I have always rated Phyllis Logan highly, but this part of the novelist, Patricia Highsmith, gave her an opportunity to really show her talent and turn herself into the character very convincingly. Both actors held the audience though the entire performance, and any interval would have ruined the whole piece. It was a most enjoyable performance and was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.

ETaylor5th January

An interesting, well written play that was very well acted by Phyllis Logan and Calum Finlay. I didn't guess the twist until Edward appeared in his third outfit of the play! Very entertaining and I wish that there were more Ripley books.

Quintin John Balsdon5th January

I absolutely loved the play, set, script and especially the actors!!! Couldn't have been more blown away. Will watch this again.

Vincent Sharp5th January

We were surprisingly impressed. Was funny as well as serious. I did however make the both of us come to different conclusions about what happened in the play. Just so you know, I was right and she was wrong.

Liliana Mifsud5th January

Great play and great acting.

Nicholas Newton4th January

Fascinating and challenging play given a taut production by Lucy Bailey. Phyllis Logan as Patricia Highsmith and Calum Findlay are both excellent in a play badly served by the criticial mauling of the London critics.

Marcus Hope4th January

An engagingly dark story, but the Highsmith character did not come across as well as it should. Some wooden acting.

Lynne4th January

Philippa sheraton2nd January
