Preview: The Talented Mr Ripley at Newcastle Northern Stage

Tom Ripley is a con-man, fantasist and, soon to be, murderer

The Talented Mr Ripley
by Patricia Highsmith (1955)
Newcastle Northern Stage
Wednesday 4th – Saturday 7th March 2020

Adapted by Mark Leipacher (2015)
Will he get away with it this time?!  The Faction's critically acclaimed production of Patricia Highsmith's psychological thriller The Talented Mr. Ripley is making a comeback with a mid-scale tour from 25th February 2020.

When Tom Ripley meets Dickie Greenleaf, Tom's skills for forging signatures, telling lies and impersonating just about anybody are nothing more than impressive games.  But as his friendship with Dickie grows to obsession, Tom's talents have very dangerous consequences.

The Faction breathes fresh life into Patricia Highsmith's blackly comic tale of ambition, escapism, and murder.

This 2020 tour is made possible by the generous support of Arts Council England. Originally premiered and nominated for 4 Off West End awards including Best Actor when it premiered at New Diorama Theatre in 2015
