"I was blown away by Shining City. McPherson's new play is haunting, inspired, and absolutely glorious. As close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

A struggling Dublin therapist is treating a man haunted by the ghost of his recently deceased wife, while at the same time the therapist's own relationship teeters on the brink. This beautifully written psychological mystery was on every list of Broadway's Best this past season.

Irish playwright Conor McPherson took London and Broadway by storm with the critically acclaimed Shining City last season, nominated for three Tony Awards including Best Play. His other plays include The Weir, Rum & Vodka, The Good Thief, The Lime Tree Bower, St. Nicholas, and Dublin Carol, and his many awards include the Olivier Award for Best New Play, the Evening Standard Award, and the London Critics' Circle Award.

Approximate Running Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
