Mainstage Production History

OTHER DESERT CITIES is the story of a once promising novelist, who returns home after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former leading Republicans, and her eccentric liberal aunt. When the novelist 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 family struggles to come to terms with their past. In this family, secrets are everything. You'll be on the edge of your seat as their family mystery unfolds. OTHER DESERT CITIES is both a funny and gripping new Broadway drama from the creator of TV's Brothers & Sisters and was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
