“Other Desert Cities”


A finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama as well as a multiple Tony-award nominee, Jon Robin Baitz’s powerful play explores the dark history that haunts a powerful American family. When writer Brooke Wyeth returns after a six-year absence to her parents’ home in the desert of Palm Springs to announce that she is going to publish a memoir that concerns a tragic incident concerning one of her brothers, she encounters powerful resistance. Part family saga, part mystery, “Other Desert Cities” explores the wrenching conflict that disparate ideologies can visit upon a family.
