<b>A political family confronts its dark history in this Pulitzer Prize-finalist play “with gleaming dialogue [and] tantalizing hints of a dangerous mystery” (Ben Brantley, <i>The New York Times</i>).</b>

<b>Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play </b>

Brooke Wyeth hasn’t been home to visit her parents in years.

But now she’s back in Palm Springs for Christmas, and she has a startling announcement to make.

Brooke is about to publish a detailed and intimate family memoir—one that will open a wound her politically prominent parents don’t want reopened.

First appearing on Broadway in a hit production starring Stacy Keach and Stockard Channing, <i>Other Desert Cities</i> “examine[s] the fractiousness of American politics through the prism of one family” (David Rooney, <i>Hollywood Reporter</i>).
