"Other Desert Cities"

Other Desert Cities

It’s Christmas 2004 in a Jewish home in the desert; and the family is going through morning, holiday rituals before heading to the club for crab claws and roasted pork. 

Welcome to the loving Wyeth household, where a family reunion threatens in a matter of a few short hours to turn into family dissolution.  City Lights Theater Company opens its 34th season with the Pulitzer runner-up of 2012 by Jon Robin Baitz, Other Desert Cities, in a production that is magnificently directed to near perfection by John McCluggage.
