When Tom Ripley is sent to Italy to track down Richard Greenleaf, the errant son of a wealthy American couple, his mission takes on a sinister twist as their lives become inextricably entwined.

Phyllis Nagy's stage adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's novel, The Talented Mr Ripley, explores the mind of one of crime fiction's great anti-heroes; an intelligent, suave and charming psychopath whose amorality is at the centre of a plot about duplicity and murder.

The Talented Mr Ripley premiered at the Palace Theatre, Watford, in October 1998.
