A guilt-ridden man believes he has seen his deceased wife and seeks the help of a therapist who has his own demons. Set in Dublin, this haunting, beautifully crafted play provides a shocking surprise.
“…a subtle, poignant play that explores loneliness… Quotidian captures that subtlety and poignancy simply, without apparent artifice.”

“Highly recommended. …another finely tuned drama… Beall delivers a tour-de-force performance as the haunted widower.”

“You will have an absorbing, riveting evening of psychological theater at Quotidian Theatre Company’s production of Conor McPherson’s Shining City. Played to the hilt by a talented ensemble cast of four in successive scenes that focus on themes of guilt and rage, this is a Shining City not to be missed.”
