Domestic Casualties of War

Poor Craig. For the deceased military man in Christopher Shinn’s play Dying City, it was out of the frying pan and into the (friendly) fire. On the eve of his deployment to Iraq, Craig and his wife, Kelly, are helpless to repair their decaying marriage. It’s a bad situation made worse after Craig’s death, which leaves the couple’s problems unresolved. To further rub salt in Kelly’s emotional wounds, Craig’s brother, Peter, visits her a year after Craig’s death and suggests that it might not have been an accident. Meanwhile, the self-absorbed Peter, an up-and-coming actor struggling with his homosexuality, and Kelly, a professional therapist and Law & Order junkie, have their own issues.
