Reno, NV. Bruka Theatre opens their 2015/16 theatre season with the volatile OTHER DESERT CITIES written by Jon Robin Baitz. The play is built with clever, gleaming dialogue, tantalizing hints of a dangerous mystery and a structural care that brings to mind the heyday of Lillian Hellman. Other Desert Cities premiered Off-Broadway in 2011, was a finalist for The Pulitzer Prize for drama and received 5 Tony Award nominations. It opens on October 2 and plays through October 25, 2015 at Bruka Theatre.
THE STORY: Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging 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. "Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blowdarts of wit—this is what Baitz does best." —New York Magazine.
