Dying City

Performance Dates
The Washington Premiere of Christopher Shinn's (Where Do We Live, Four) transfixing, intimate play. One year after his identical twin brother, Craig's, suspicious death in Iraq, Peter shows up unannounced at his sister-in-law Kelly's apartment. Having not spoken since the funeral, Peter and Kelly face-off in a passive-aggressive battle rooted in half-truths and betrayal. The two's emotionally brutal skirmish intersperses with flashbacks of Craig's final night home before deployment. Dying City is a subtle commentary on the heart-breaking ramifications of war.
