The Perfect Psychological Thriller

by Patricia Highsmith

Adapted by filmmaker A. Hitchcock

Theatre version by Tales / Inc.

Directed by Mariana Hannono

Two strangers meet on a train and, from that moment on, their lives will never be the same. One of them suggests that they should "exchange" murders. Bruno suggests he kill Miriam and Guy kill Bruno's hated father. Each will murder a stranger, with no apparent motive, so neither will be suspected 


Adapted by Tales / Inc.

Two talented actors, each with extensive experience in teaching and interactive theater, have come together to create an original and relaxed adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s masterpiece. In this unique production, your students will spontaneously become part of the cast.

The performance starts as a storytelling session but soon evolves as the actors employ casual props, student participation, and contemporary drama techniques to craft a dynamic and original show that’s ideal for teenagers and adults.

(Note: The story has been adapted for a teenage audience.)


We will pause at pivotal moments to discuss with the students the potential decisions that the characters could make in the play.


Optional: A role-playing activity with the students may follow the performance (see Photo Gallery).


(A fantastic method for learning English through improvisational acting.)
