SHINING CITY is a haunting play, dense with urban lives that brush against one another while never making contact. John (Matthew Broderick) is seeking help from Ian, a counselor (Billy Carter), 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.

Directed by Ciarán O'Reilly, SHINING CITY also features Billy Carter (The Weir, Port Authority), Lisa Dwan (the acclaimed Beckett Trilogy), and James Russell (Port Authority, Juno and the Paycock).
