Double trouble

Double trouble Life gets complicated in drama ’Dying City’

by James Sanford

 

It was supposed to be a peaceful evening for psychologist Kelly: She just wanted to watch “Law and Order.” But the young widow is about to get some unexpected company: her late husband Craig’s identical twin brother — an actor named Peter — turns up at her door and plunges her into her own personal psychodrama.

That’s the set-up for Christopher Shinn’s “Dying City,” which Capital TheatreWorks is staging, beginning Friday.


Shinn’s script opens with a quote from Aeschylus — “a lie sweet in the mouth is sour in the stomach” — and proceeds to illustrate that thought as Kelly realizes Craig kept some unsavory secrets.


The drama, directed by Marianne Bacon, stars Kayla DeWitt and Dax Spanogle.
