Other Desert Cities at the Old Vic

Date Posted: 13/01/2014

The Old Vic presents the UK premiere of Jon Robin Baitz’s play, Other Desert Cities, which will be the first in a season of productions to be presented in-the-round at the theatre this year.

Directed by Lindsay Posner, Other Desert Cities is billed as a fierce and funny drama deftly exploring family politics, love, loss and redemption. The show will run from 13th March to 24th May.


Brooke Wyeth returns to the family home in Palm Springs for the first time in six years with some incendiary news for her Republican parents Polly and Lyman, her brother Trip and her recovering alcoholic aunt Silda.

She is about to publish a memoir about her family, exposing a pivotal moment in their painful and explosive past, her actions threatening to push fractured family relations to a point beyond repair.
