Shining City opened at the Royal Court in 2004 and prompted the London Telegraph to describe him as “the finest dramatist of his generation…” It subsequently opened on Broadway in 2006 and was nominated for two Tony Awards, including Best Play.

In Dublin, a man seeks help from a counselor, claiming to have seen the ghost of his recently deceased wife. But what begins as just an unusual encounter becomes a struggle between the living and dead — a struggle that will shape and define both men for the rest of their lives.

“Shining City is as close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets… quiet, haunting and absolutely glorious.” —New York Times

“His sentences are better, his sentiments more developed than many Booker Prize-winners. He is terrific.” —Observer

“At his best Conor McPherson is a writer who combines great character comedy with a real sense of pathos. And this is Conor McPherson at his very best … Guilt, sex and therapy with a script from acting heaven. Shining City is certainly Conor McPherson’s writing at its most inspired.” —Daily Mail
