'Other Desert Cities' At TheRep

  After six years away, prodigal daughter Brooke Wyeth returns to her Palm Springs Desert home to celebrate the holidays and announce plans to publish her childhood memoir – complete with revelations of deep family secrets. Retired ambassador dad, savvy mom, rehabbing aunt and ne'er-do-well brother team up to stop her and the joys of the family reunion quickly unravel in a surprising twist.

Written by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright, Jon Robin Baitz, Other Desert Cities is a searing comedy-drama with banter that dazzles - it was described by the New York Times as "one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade."

Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, NY is mounting a production of Other Desert Cities which begins previews tomorrow. It is directed by Michael Bush. We are joined by two of the production’s stars - Ellen Parker and Kevin McGuire.
