Straight from its highly successful run at Lincoln Center, Other Desert Cities won the Drama League Award for Distinguished Play, was named Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play by the Outer Critics Circle, and was a 2012 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Baitz (“The Substance of Fire,” “A Fair Country”) presents a finely crafted drama focusing on a young novelist returning to her Palm Springs family home as she announces a completed memoir and her desire to unlock the lives they once had. As in all desert lands, mirage can transfix and trick the inhabitants and as the heat gives way, reality comes into sharp and unrelenting focus. The inaugural production of the 2012-13 season is directed by Gil Lazier (FUSION’s God of Carnage, August: Osage County, How the Other Half Loves and Parlour Song).
