Playwright Conor McPherson is no stranger to hair-raising ghost stories (The Weir, The Seafarer). But the haunting at the center of his devastating drama Shining City is grounded by a naturalism suited to telling tales of psychological possession, not of mysterious visitors or evil tricksters. It is the inner demons that trouble the characters this time around: a former priest, a widowed philanderer, a jilted mother… If McPherson’s The Birds – from earlier this season at Imago Theatre – presented a world in which nature had turned against mankind, McPherson's Shining City showcases what happens when we’re betrayed by our very selves.
