Second Stage Theater has announced complete casting for Christopher Shinn's Dying City. Directed by Lila Neugebauer, the production will feature Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Fargo) as Kelly and Colin Woodell (Geffen Playhouse's Long Day's Journey Into Night) as Craig and Peter. Dying City will begin previews May 14 at the Tony Kiser Theater and will officially open on June 3.

Dying City is set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, where a young widow receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband. The work is described as exploring "the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and the terrorist attacks of 9/11, through the interwoven stories of three unforgettable characters."

The full creative team for Dying City includes scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, and sound design by Bray Poor.
