OTHER DESERT CITIES Runs Now thru 2/9 at The Circuit Playhouse

In this funny and searing family drama, Brooke Wyeth, a once promising novelist, returns home after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former Reagan inner circle, her brother, and her aunt. When Brooke announces she is about to publish a memoir focusing on an explosive chapter in the family's history, the holiday reunion is thrown into turmoil as the Wyeths struggle to come to terms with their past. A 2012 Tony Award nominee for Best Play.

Other Desert Cities is directed by Dave Landis (Good People) and stars Kim Justis Eikner (2013 Ostrander Award Winner for Lead Actress in a Drama - Good People) alongside Playhouse on the Square Company Members Irene Crist (Hot L Baltimore; August: Osage County) and Christopher Joel Onken (Red; Deathtrap). Local favorites Ann Marie Hall and Jerry Chipman round out the powerhouse cast.

Other Desert Cities runs tonight, January 17 - February 9 at The Circuit Playhouse. The Pay What You Can performance is Thursday, January 23 at 8:00 pm. The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper Street in Midtown Memphis. For more information or to make reservations, call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at playhouseonthesquare.org.
