WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Seeing Place Theater, known for intense & intimate ensemble work, brings the first New York revival of Dying City, a Pulitzer Prize finalist by Christopher Shinn. It is the story of a woman who is forced to confront her dead husband's identical twin brother in this remarkable tale of loss and how two very different people handle their grief.
Dying City follows Kelly, who lost her husband, Craig, to the Iraq War a year before. Despite being a therapist, Kelly has successfully buried her grief until a literal reminder, Peter (Craig's identical twin brother) shows up unannounced at her door. Grief and guilt collide, and questions for which there are no answers are asked.
