Shining City
By Conor McPherson

opens on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 3:00pm
Directed by Joanie Schultz

SCThe Redtwist season of fear continues with a terrifying tale where the demons are within, featuring Redtwist company member, and four-time Jeff-nominee, Brian Parry.

The Play
Have you ever done anything terrible you regret, that could not be undone? And are you afraid of the consequences? Just as a middle-age man is collapsing under the weight of his lifeless marriage and rising rage toward his tender wife, she is killed in a horrific crash. He is wracked with guilt and haunted by her memory. A terrifying tale from downtown Dublin with a double dose of compassion for the walking wounded.
