…it's easy to see that something magical is happening on stage. – Arizona Daily Star


McPherson's play, and Beowulf Alley's production, offers not so much a story as an experience. – Tucson Weekly


…a serious theater-lover’s piece of work … Beowulf Alley’s production of “Shining City” is a clear and forthright study of human nature, with balanced casting and an appreciation for giving substance to art. The bumper sticker description would be ”watch learn talk”. – Let the Show Begin,


Set in a therapist's office in Dublin, the play grapples with faith, guilt and redemption, underscoring the failures of language to communicate the truth. John, who has recently seen the ghost of his deceased wife seeks professional help from Ian, a priest-turned-therapist.


Conor McPherson, called “the finest dramatist of his generation” by  the Daily Telegraph, has won vast acclaim for his insightful, meditative plays, which focus with a quiet, unblinking eye on themes of the crisis of modern masculinity, spirituality, frailty, solitude and – of course – death. Directed by Susan Arnold, the cast of Shining City includes Lucas Gonzales, David Greenwood, Laura Lippman and Jared Stokes.
