Set in Dublin, Conor McPherson’s Shining City tells the haunting and beautiful story of a grieving widower who claims to have been visited by the ghost of his recently deceased wife. Terrified and guilt ridden, John begins therapy sessions with Ian, a counsellor who is struggling with demons of his own.
As John’s sessions unfold, truth and lies are revealed for both men, as the two lost and lonely souls seek out the answers to their desperate need for connection and ultimately, to find some sense of meaning to their own existence.
