About Dying City

Dying City
by Christopher Shinn

When an Iraq war widow is unexpectedly visited by her dead husband’s twin brother, the two are forced to explore the repercussions of their loss, confront the secrets of the past and admit the truth about the tragic legacy that connects them. Called “an achingly compassionate new play” by Variety, this off-Broadway hit explores the profound impact historical and political events have on the individual. The New York Times credits playwright Christopher Shinn, author of this “transfixing tale of grief and violence,” as “among the most provocative and probing of American playwrights today.”
