Lucy Bailey directs Phyllis Logan and Calum Findlay in
Joanna Murray-Smith’s play about novelist Patricia Highsmith.
Not available. Professional reviewers are impressed with the
acting from both Logan and Findlay, less so with the script. Standard
"generation clash dialogue" sums up Will Longman, condensing the opinions of the

Still, there is enough dramatic tension to
sustain the running time and it doesn't feel stretched according to most. Worth
seeing mostly for the acting, is the general opinion.
