OTHER DESERT CITIES by John Robin Baitz
May 14th, 2019
Director: Angela Dias
It’s Christmas Eve 2004, when Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke, a novelist, declares to her well-bred and respected republican family that her next book, set to publish in a few short months, is actually a tell-all memoir recounting up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history—a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.
