WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Shining City is a haunting play, dense with urban lives that brush against one another while never making contact. When the character John is first introduced, he is seeking help from Ian, a counselor, after the unexpected death of his wife. Though shaken by the loss, John is troubled by more than just grief; he has begun to see his wife's ghost in their home.

As their sessions unfold, secrets and lies are exposed in this thriller where a simple tale turns out to be anything but. Shining City reflects on the guilt, anxiety and restlessness of two lonely men creating a tale that the New York Times calls "as close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets."
