Shining City

By Conor McPherson
Directed by Cathy Gibbons Mostek
Sunday, July 14, 15, and (if necessary) 16, 2019

Audition announcement:

Shining City is set in Dublin, where a guilt-ridden man reaches out to a therapist after seeing the ghost of his recently deceased wife. Wrestling with his own demons, the therapist can only do so much to help. Routine visits between the two men quickly become a gripping struggle to survive, changing both of them for the rest of their lives. – Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Director Cathy Gibbons Mostek is seeking 3 men and 1 woman for this challenging Conor McPherson play. All roles are open. Strong, dramatic-acting experience a plus.


Ian – male; 40s

John – male; 50s

Neasa – female; 30s

Laurence – male; 20s

To audition, please prepare a 1-2 minute, contemporary, dramatic monologue. Cold reads from sides will also be utilized to assess ability to do an Irish accent: this is non-negotiable as the play is set in Dublin and is written in an Irish vernacular (“you know?”). Sides will not be given out in advance.

No appointment is necessary. Headshots and resumes are not required but very welcome. You may download the audition form and fill it out ahead of time.

We look forward to seeing you there
