Other Desert Cities
by Jon Robin Baitz
directed by Peter Rothstein
The Guthrie presents Other Desert Cities, a riveting new play by the creator of TV's hit drama "Brothers & Sisters." Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother and aunt. But when she announces her plans to publish a memoir, a crucial event in the family's history is brought to light, and a surprising twist is revealed. Featuring Guthrie favorites Sally Wingert, Michelle Barber and David Anthony Brinkley, Other Desert Cities is a searing comedy with banter that dazzles and decimates, making it one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade.
