"A beautiful piece...wonderful." - Variety 
"quiet, haunting and absolutely glorious play by Conor McPherson" - New York Times


Northeast Ohio premiere Shining City, set in Dublin, is the story about a guilt-ridden man who reaches out to his therapist after seeing the ghost of his recently deceased wife. Wrestling with his own demons, his therapist can only do so much to help. What follows is a haunting and suspenseful tale of what it means to lose faith - in God, in relationships and in one's self as secrets unfold. 2006 Tony Award nominee for Best Play. PG-13 for strong language

Shining City ultimately leads us to the final moments of the play with a hair-raising, mind-bending twist." - Director Bernadette Clemens
