This smart, entertaining play explores family dynamics when prodigal daughter, Brooke, returns home to share her imminent book release. Her book chronicles events surrounding her late brother’s act of rebellion which shattered more than lives. Desperate to keep her book shelved forever, Brooke’s high-profile, conservative parents (best friends of Ronald and Nancy Reagan) agonize before unfolding the true details of a tragic wound they don’t want reopened. Brooke’s often inebriated aunt and sarcastic younger brother add a healthy dose of family discord to this play. Other Desert Cities premiered at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater and played to sold-out houses.
