Theatre production: Other Desert Cities
The Brighton Theatre Company is hosting a fundraising evening for the BHS, featuring supper and a performance of their new production, Other Desert Cities.
A Pulitzer-nominated play by Brothers & Sisters creator and West Wing contributor Jon Robin Baitz, Other Desert Cities tell the emotionally-charged story of family coming to terms with long held secrets. For the first time in years, Lyman and Polly Wyeth host a family Christmas at their richly-appointed home in Palm Springs, California - but when their daughter Brooke announces that she's writing a tell-all memoir about an incident from the family's past they'd all rather forget, the festivities are thrown into disarray. With its richly-drawn characters and witty yet lacerating dialogue, Other Desert Cities deliver both humour and pathos.
When: Wednesday 15th August 2018, 7:30pm for 8:00pm curtain
Where: Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre, corner Wilson and Carpenter Streets, Brighton
Tickets: $25 (includes performance and supper)
