Other Desert Cities

Performing at The Waterfront Playhouse in Key West (Jan 28 - Feb 15)


A Pulitzer Prize finalist, nominated for 5 Tony Awards.

Winner of the Drama Award for Best Play

One of the most celebrated plays in recent Broadway history.

A daughter returns home for a Christmas gathering after writing a tell-all book about a family secret. Parents and family suddenly scramble with an issue they’d rather not discuss. Secrets and lies unravel making each character more complex—and human. Other Desert Cities is a searing comedy with banter that dazzles and decimates, making it one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade.

“One of the best new plays of the decade.” The New York Times.
“Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising.” The New York Daily News
“Built with gleaming dialogue, tantalizing hints of a dangerous mystery and a structural care that brings to mind the heyday of Lillian Hellman, “Cities” has the appeal of a Broadway hit from another age.”  NY Times
“Full-bodied and emotionally alive … filled with humor, sensitivity and invigorating anger.” Hollywood Reporter

Written by Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by Danny Weathers
