Dying City

By Christopher Shinn

After hit seasons at The Royal Court Theatre in London and the Lincoln Center Theater in New York, Dying City makes its way to Sydney for its Australian premiere.

A soldier shoots himself, but why? For his wife, Kelly, and gay twin brother, Peter, politics and the intensely personal collide in this gripping drama.

One evening, Peter, a professional actor, is driven from the theatre, mid performance, by homophobic taunts from a fellow actor. His sudden intrusion on Kelly, at her New York apartment, forces her to face an untidy past, and the truth about her dead husband, Craig.

Baghdad is a dying city but in leading cities throughout the world, acts of emotional terrorism are enacted daily.

Presented by Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Gaiety Theatre
