Other Desert Cities

In Jon Robin Baitz’s new poignant drama and Pulitzer finalist, Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs for Christmas to visit her parents after a six-year absence. A once-promising novelist, she announces to her family the imminent publication of a memoir dredging up a tragic event in the family’s history – a wound that her parents don’t want re-opened.

Brooke has come home to draw a line in the sand and is daring her family to cross it. Her brother won’t play her game; her aunt knows way too much, and her parents fall into all their old routines as they plead with her to keep their story quiet.

Yet their pleading falls on deaf ears as Brooke sees them as representing an Establishment that she feels has betrayed their country. She goes to war with them, and blood is spilled.
