About this event

This performance is only open to asymptomatic vaccinated students, faculty, and staff. Students currently on leave are considered visitors and may not attend performances.

Note: this performance is located outdoors in the Branford Calliope Courtyard, accessible through the double-archways off of the center of the main Branford courtyard. Please arrive early, as audience members must walk through the "stage" to reach the seating area on the grass. The performance will begin promptly at the listed start time, and we will not be able to seat patrons arriving after the performance has begun.

In present-day Dublin, a woman comes to a counselor seeking help after seeing the ghost of her recently-deceased wife. Meanwhile, the counselor is dealing with his own crisis of faith and identity. Routine visits between the two transform into 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.Note: this performance is located outdoors in the Branford Calliope Courtyard, accessible through the double-archways off of the center of the main Branford courtyard. Please arrive early, as audience members must walk through the "stage" to reach the seating area on the grass.

An examination of guilt, faith, sexuality, and identity, Shining City seeks to understand the tenuous phenomenon that occurs when we begin to haunt ourselves.

Content Warnings: Discussions of homophobia, alcoholism, domestic violence, and death.
