Upstream Theater presents Conor McPherson's acclaimed Shining City
"quiet, haunting and absolutely glorious" Ben Brantley, New York Times
"one of the finest plays of the decade" Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"moving, compassionate, ingenious and absolutely gripping." Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph
In 2003 in a modest Dublin office, a young ex-priest-turned-therapist is consulted by a well-off businessman with a terrible secret. How these characters change, and how they change each other, is the storya story that will grip you and move you and make you laugh and send shivers down your spine.
