Shining City
by Conor McPherson
January 4, 2008 through February 2, 2008

Third Rail returns to Ireland with this acclaimed play by the author of The Weir.

John visits Ian, a psychiatrist, for help with a predicament: his wife won't leave the house. The problem: she was killed in an automobile accident months ago. Shining City is a story of faith, guilt and loss, where the ghosts of your past can either haunt you or set you free.

Nominated for the 2006 Tony Award for Best Play.
