WKZO interview with OTHER DESERT CITIES director D. Terry Williams
Other Desert Cities
One of the most intriguing and entertaining new plays on Broadway comes to Farmers Alley Theatre this February with Jon Robin Baitz’ OTHER DESERT CITIES. Nominated for 5 Tony Awards in 2011, this compelling drama will be an area premiere much like our previous works CLYBOURNE PARK and VANIA & SONIA & MASHA & SPIKE. It’s Christmas in Palm Springs 2004 and the Wyeth’s, a prominent family with strong ties to Ronald Reagan and the Republican party, is reuniting. Liberal daughter Brooke arrives from New York to share her new memoir with her conservative parents, which dredges up tragic events from the family’s history – wounds they don’t want reopened. Sprinkled with humor and real human emotion, this provocative new play is sure to have audiences talking long after the actors take their final bow.
