Redbud Productions continues its 16th year with this award-winning comedy-drama, which played to sold out Off-Broadway houses in 2011 at Lincoln Center and was a critically acclaimed hit when it transferred to Broadway.
A Pulitzer Prize finalist, Other Desert Cities was named Best Play of the Year by the Outer Critics Circle, was lauded by The New York Times as “The Best New Play on Broadway,” and received five Tony award nominations, including Best Play.
“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups…in many a season.” The New York Times. “An oasis of humor & poignance” USA Today “Like a good popcorn movie, ‘Desert’ holds you rapt and keeps you guessing to the end” New York Daily News
Brooke (Dana Denha), fresh out of rehab, returns home to Palm Springs to celebrate a family Christmas after a six-year absence.
Announcing she will publish a tell-all memoir of a tragic event in their history, she dares her family to prevent her, and discovers that her wealthy Reagan-supporting parents do not want this painful wound reopened under any circumstances.
Deb Wood and Tim Grimes are featured as the distraught parents, Liam Weeks is the brother caught in the middle of the heated family conflict and Lenore Ferber is the outspoken alcoholic aunt in recovery in this riveting comedy-drama of family secrets and a Holiday reunion gone awry.
“A Broadway gem.” – Newsday.
