The Story: In this Broadway hit and Pulitzer Prize nominee, Brooke Wyeth returns home after a long absence to visit her well-connected, conservative parents in Palm Springs. In a dramatic shift, 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 desert sand and dares them all to cross it. “All family reunions should be this satisfying” said The New York Times, praising the play as a ” witty, deeply enjoyable family drama.” A co-production with Syracuse Stage in New York.

Run Time:
Approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes, including one intermission.

Other Desert Cities is recommended for ages 16+; contains strong language and mature content. Children under 6 are not permitted at any PCS production.

"When Jean takes possession of the cell phone of a dead man, she is thrown into a mysterious journey of self-discovery and awakening. Through this small modern device, she finds adventure, purpose and even love – but at what cost? This hilarious and paradoxical treatise on the digital world probes at the thin line between reality and fantasy, privacy and openness, and even life and death."
