WHO: Christopher Shinn
PLAYS: Four, Where Do We Live, What Didn’t Happen, The Coming World.
WHAT HE’S UP TO: Shinn will receive his biggest New York production to date when his new play Dying City opens at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater at Lincoln Center on February 26. Dying City tells the story of a young therapist whose husband dies while on military duty in Iraq. A year later, his identical twin brother arrives unexpectedly at her door, seeking solace—and answers to the mystery of his brother’s death. Elsewhere, Shinn’s one-act Four is being turned into a film by director Joshua Sanchez. For more about Christopher Shinn, check out his website here.
