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

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

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