Christopher Shinn to Direct ‘Dying City’

Playwright and director Christopher Shinn will direct the upcoming revival of his play Dying City at Second Stage this spring. Shinn directed his own work in the past (including 2004’s Where Do We Live), replaces Lila Neugebauer (Waverly Gallery, Mary Page Marlowe)who was previously announced as the show’s director.

2ST’s Dying City will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Colin Woodell. Performances will begin May 14 ahead of a June 3 opening in the Tony Kiser Theater.

Set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, Dying City explores the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and 9/11. The play, a 2008 Pulitzer Prize finalist that was first seen at London’s Royal Court in 2006, is the story of a young widow who receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband.
