Performance Pick

The Talented Mr. Ripley

U.S. regional premiere • Literary thriller
A play by Phyllis Nagy
Adapted from the novel by Patricia Highsmith
Directed by Blake Robison
September 8 – 26, 2010
Round House Theatre Bethesda

Enigmatic conman Tom Ripley is determined to gain wealth and social status by any means possible. The perfect opportunity arises when American financier Herbert Greenleaf sends him to Italy to track down his son, who has been living the high life there with his beautiful girlfriend. His mission takes on a sinister twist as the lives of Ripley and young Richard Greenleaf become inextricably entwined – with murder the only way out.

This subversive, psychological thriller explores the mind of one of literature’s great anti-heroes; an intelligent, suave, charming psychopath whose amorality is at the center of a plot about duplicity and murder. Round House is the first regional theatre in the country to have this gripping play on its stage.

Ripley is recommended for ages 17 and up due to adult content ? including language, violence, and situations.
