Other Desert Cities

Jon Robin Baitz

Pulitzer Prize finalist and creator of hit TV series, Brothers & Sisters and contributor on The West Wing, Jon Robin Baitz has taken America by storm with his Broadway debut. Other Desert Cities, an acidly witty and deeply affecting tour de force, melds the political and personal with electrifying results. Nominated for five Tony Awards, the award-winning play now makes its UK premiere at The Old Vic with Lindsay Posner (Noises Off and The Winslow Boy) returning to direct this stellar cast.

It’s Christmas Eve in Palm Springs. Novelist Brooke Wyeth is back home to celebrate the holidays with her well-heeled parents, brother and aunt. But the long-awaited reunion is soon set alight by a bombshell Brooke is to publish a tell-all memoir. Exposing the most painful chapter of the Wyeths’ buried past and threatening to destroy everything her famous parents hold dear, Brookes revelation pushes fractured family relations to the point of no return.
