“When they came to tell me about Craig, they just showed up – they just…show up, no warning, they don’t call…”

Dying City is a play about collapse. Collapse of relationships. Collapse of a city. Collapse of an idea. Set in New York City in January 2004 and July 2005, the stories of two brothers unfold over two nights.

First produced at the Royal Court Theatre in 2006, this compassionate play explores the experiences of grief and human sadness, the effect of pervading violence on a generation and the brutality of war within ourselves. An intimate portrait of a relationship, a family and a city changed forever.

This production is part of the Rough Magic AIB SEEDS Showcase 2009, a pioneering initiative to seek out, enable, encourage, develop and stage the work of a new generation of theatre talent.

The showcase will also include an 8.30pm performance of Caryl Churchill’s Serious Money, and readings of two new plays directed by Lynne Parker and Tom Creed.
