Other Desert Cities
Apron Theater Company is the resident theater company of Next Stage Arts Project, led by Karla Baldwin and Hallie Flower.
Set in Palm Springs over Christmas weekend, Other Desert Cities centers on the powerful Wyeth family. Patriarch Lyman Wyeth, (played by Michael Kennedy) an actor-turned-ambassador during the Reagan administration, and matriarch Polly, (Christopher Coutant) a former screenwriter, are set to celebrate the holidays with their adult children. Without informing her parents, daughter Brooke Wyeth, (Bridget McBride) a once-promising novelist, has written a memoir exposing painful family secrets. Her brother, Trip, (Greg Lesch) the creator of a hit TV reality series, tries to stay out of the crossfire as their alcoholic aunt, Polly's sister Silda, (Diana Stugger) eggs Brooke on. In a series of confrontations, the Wyeths sift through conflicting memories of the past and face serious choices about how to go forward.
