MBT Rep Presents:

Other Desert Cities

Other Desert Cities Cast List

In this dramatic comedy about a dramatic family, once-promising novelist Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her wealthy parents, her brother, and her aunt. The holiday reunion is thrown into chaos when Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up an explosive and tragic event in the family’s history—a skeleton they staunchly prefer to keep in the closet. Politics collide, tempers flare, and long-held secrets come to light in this powerful, spirited story of a family that must come to grips with its past.

“A winner…funny and fierce, invigorating and intelligent.” – Daily News

“Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising.” – NY Daily News

“Spending time with these messed-up, complicated people is a genuine pleasure.” – New York Post

“Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blow darts of wit—this is what Baitz does best.” – New York Magazine

Special note: characters smoke herbal cigarettes in place of tobacco or marijuana, but the Walton is small, and this play may not be suitable for patrons with smoke allergies or breathing difficulties.
