His characters are clumsy with their words, which, yes, makes for a tougher and possibly more frustrating read. But when one goes the extra mile to read the dialogue as though it was being spoken by a person on a stage, you really do get a sense of how well crafted this play is. A deserving Pulitzer finalist.
Having twins played by the same actor really puts an emphasis on how minimal the play is as a whole, with hardly any (written) light or sound changes throughout the production. He also keeps stage direction very minimal, choosing to focus on the words and not the physical actions of each character.
One of the better plays I've read--very easy, very simple, and yet touching, painful. Shinn has all the workings of a great dramatist; Dying City is step number one.
