Other Desert Cities examines the lies we tell to protect each other and the damage they cause.

The Wyeth family Christmas holiday erupts when daughter Brooke arrives bearing a soon-to-be-published memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history. It’s a wound they don’t want reopened — the suicide of Brooke’s brother, Henry, who had been involved with the radical underground subculture.

“Baitz’s script sparkles with a deep understanding of the turmoil boiling beneath the surface of his characters and it is chockfull of wonderful lines.” Associated Press
