The first stage adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's famous crime novel

TomRipley is a criminal with an ambiguous past. He is sent to Italy by awealthy financier to try and coax home the rich man's son. In theprocess Ripley becomes both attracted and seduced, finding the murderthe only way to deal with the situation. From that point Ripley triesto cover up his crime. Patricia Highsmith's beguiling tale of moralityand amorality is given a dramatic rendering by contemporary dramatistPhyllis Nagy, who knew Highsmith in her later years in Paris.

"Eachplay I see by Phyllis Nagy confirms me in the belief that she is thefinest playwright to have emerged in the 1990s" (Financial Times)

Editorial Reviews

'Nagy's adaptation is dreamlike; scenes blur, and the players in Ripley's psychotic game - all of them, as far as he's concerned, dispensable - loom like grotesque caricatures.'
