Other Desert Cities
January 11 - February 9, 2013
"A winner... funny and fierce, invigorating and intelligent"- NY Daily News
"The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups in many a season." -- New York Times
Written by Jon Robin Baitz, author of The Substance of Fire, Ten Unknowns," and Three Hotels, OTHER DESERT CITIES tells the story of a family where secrets are currency and everyone is rich. Brooke Wyeth, a once-promising young novelist, returns home after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, who are former members of Reagan's inner circle, her brother and aunt. The festivities are short-lived, however, when Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history - a wound that her parents would prefer not be reopened.
Featuring Nancy E. Carroll, Anne Gottlieb, Munson Hicks, Karen MacDonald, and Christopher M. Smith.
