TheatreWorks Opens OTHER DESERT CITIES Tonight
TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents the Regional Premiere of OTHER DESERT CITIES by acclaimed playwright Jon Robin Baitz (The Substance of Fire, A Fair Country, Three Hotels). In this gripping Broadway hit, nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play, a Hollywood star's desert estate glows with Christmas cheer. But home for the holidays is daughter Brooke, a novelist whose tell-all memoir threatens to rip the politically-divided clan apart. Broadway vets Kandis Chappell and James Sutorius will star as Polly and Lyman Wyeth, Brooke's staunch right-wing parents. With dazzling wit and razor-sharp insight, this Pulitzer Prize finalist and winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play and Drama League Award for Distinguished Play balances fierce comedy and riveting family drama in its Regional Premiere at TheatreWorks, co-produced with San Diego's The Old Globe. Contains mature language.
