By Conor McPherson
25 November - 19 December 2009
In a city of emotional casualties, uprooted souls drift, hoping to connect, but the city can be a hard place to reach people… In Dublin, a man haunted by visions of his dead wife fears he is losing his sanity. His novice therapist is struggling to make sense of his own life. How much comfort can he offer in the midst of his own suffering? Described by The London Telegraph as “the finest dramatist of his generation”, Conor McPherson is one of Ireland’s most celebrated contemporary playwrights. Shining City is both a gripping ghost story and a poignant reflection of contemporary life. Nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Play, it is widely considered McPherson’s finest work. “As close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets” – The New York Times
