About Switzerland

Switzerland is set to open in the West End at the Ambassadors Theatre in November 2018. Set in the Swiss Alps, Patricia Highsmith is an author with a penchant for writing thrillers. When a man turns up at her door, he successfully persuades Patricia to write once more. In Switzerland, her life becomes a thriller just like the ones she’s used to writing.


BAFTA winning actress Phyllis Logan is best known for starring in Downton Abbey and Lovejoy. On stage, she has appeared in Richard III at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield and The Case of David Anderson Q.C at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh. In London, she has starred in Marvin’s Room at the Hampstead Theatre.

Calum Findlay has performed in numerous shows with the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as shows at the National Theatre and theatres in Bath, Birmingham and Manchester. In 2017, he starred in the renowned production of Hamlet at the Harold Pinter Theatre alongside Andrew Scott.

Future casting is to be announced.

What's the story?

At the start of the show, audiences meet Patricia Highsmith, an ageing author who wrote many thriller novels in her heyday. In the Swiss Alps, she’s surrounded by her collection of books and antique weaponry. Now finding comfort with her cats rather than penning novels, a man from her New York publisher turns up, trying to convince Patricia to write one final novel. When the young man isn’t all he initially seems, the charming man isn’t all he initially seems to be and his mission unravels throughout.
