After a six -year absence, Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother, and eccentric aunt. When Brooke announces her decision to publish a memoir revealing a devastating family secret, the holiday reunion is turned upside down. This battle of reality and perception opens old family wounds as memories are tested and the Wyeth clan learns some secrets cannot stay buried forever. With biting wit and razor-sharp insight, Other Desert Cities is hailed as “one of the best plays of the decade.”
