ACT Theatre Presents...
Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz May 31 - June 30, 2013 Directed by Victor Pappas Falls Theatre, Seattle
Join KING FM and Sean MacLean Behind the Scenes on June 4th at 6pm!
The public and private mythology of an iconic Republican family is challenged when their "black sheep" liberal daughter announces that she's planning the publication of a memoir dredging up a pivotal emotional crisis in their shared past. Playwright Jon Robin Baitz, author of The Substance of Fire and creator of the hit series Brothers and Sisters, compellingly examines the many faces of truth and the tangled ties that bind in this incendiary Tony Award-nominated drama.
