The Old Vic presents the UK premiere of Other Desert Cities. Both fierce and funny, this is a play that skilfully tackles issues ranging from family politics to love, loss and redemption.
When Brooke Wyeth decides to go back to the family home after an absence of six years, she has some shocking news for her Republican -voting relatives: she’s publishing a book about their lives, revealing some secrets that they would rather were kept quiet. With family tensions already high, Wyeth’s actions could strain relations to breaking point.
Previously staged on Broadway and having won various prestigious awards, this play by Jon Robin Baitz (creator of television’s Brothers & Sisters) offers a brilliant insight to family dynamics and political differences.
