Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our upcoming production of Shining City.  The safety of actors, designers, technicians, and our audience is our primary concern.  Stay tuned for more details as we are able to determine them, and stay safe!

Different Stages continues its 2019 - 2020 season with Conor McPherson’s Shining City, a brilliant, haunting play from the multi-award-winning author of The Weir. Ian has left the priesthood to become a therapist. John is one of his first clients. John's wife has been killed in a car accident, and he keeps receiving visits from her ghost. John, with Ian's help, starts to recover. But what begins as an unusual encounter becomes a desperate struggle between the living and the dead – a struggle which will shape and define both of them for the rest of their lives.


Directed by Norman Blumensaadt (Frankenstein), Shining City features Rick Felkins (The Magic Fire) and Jason Graf (Dex and Abby).  Also in the cast are James Lindsley (Turn of the Screw) and Adrienne Gilg (American Academy of Dramatic Art-LA)
