Other Desert Cities - A Play
Publisher: Grove Press
A political family confronts its dark history in this Pulitzer Prize-finalist play “with gleaming dialogue [and] tantalizing hints of a dangerous mystery” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times). Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play Brooke Wyeth hasn’t been home to visit her parents in years. But now she’s back in Palm Springs for Christmas, and she has a startling announcement to make. Brooke is about to publish a detailed and intimate family memoir—one that will open a wound her politically prominent parents don’t want reopened. First appearing on Broadway in a hit production starring Stacy Keach and Stockard Channing, Other Desert Cities “examine[s] the fractiousness of American politics through the prism of one family” (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter).
