Other Desert Cities

Juicy and surprising drama with humor of a writer returning home to Palm Springs announcing she’s publishing a memoir that dredges up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history.

“Sympathies keep shifting among the members of the wounded family portrayed here. Every one selfish, loving, cruel, compassionate, irritating, charming and just possibly heroic…leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated.” – NY Times

If families existed without conflict, stress, heartbreak, and deception—and if those difficulties weren’t often laced with great wit—many wonderful plays would never have been written.

One excellent example: Jon Robin Baitz’s Other Desert Cities, which opens April 4th at Silver Spring Stage. It’s the compelling story of a specific family – the Wyeths of Palm Springs, California.
