Other Desert Cities

Other Desert Cities delivers serious family drama and combustible comedy.

No subject is sacred in the Wyeth family. Politics, personal shortcomings, successes and failures…any and all topics are up for discussion. Except one. As this modern family deals with it’s collective demons, the audience is taken on a thrill ride that will have them by turns laughing, in tears…and challenging assumptions. Acclaimed playwright Jon Robin Baitz’ Other Desert Cities premiered Off-Broadway in early 2011 and transferred to Broadway later that year. An audience and critics’ favorite, it was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. For those who enjoy edgy, grownup entertainment, Douglas Caputo brings it to Kayenta.

The Plot: Brooke Wyeth returns home after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother, and aunt. Brooke announces she’s about to publish a memoir that dredges up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history—a wound they don’t want reopened. Nonetheless, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it. The play explores the limits of parental love and filial duty, our myth-making culture, and the claim we have on our own biography when it involves the invasion of privacy of others.
