DYING CITY by Christopher Shinn
directed by Adam Reich
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. A Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2008, DYING CITY is a quiet, unsettling play about grief, identity and violence in the human psyche – the lies, betrayal and self-deceptions and the centrality of hate in human existence.
