Play Read/Scene Study Class
Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz led by director Andrew Grenier
Wednesday, JAN. 15, 2014 / 7 PM / $10 / Ages 10 - Adult
WICA Play Read/Scene Study class provides an environment for experienced, beginning, and non-actors to gather for readings, to learn reading and performance technique, and to become acquainted with a broad theatrical repertoire without the pressure of a full performance. Class will be led by director Andrew Grenier. Andy will be teaching from the play, Other Desert Cities, by Jon Robin Baitz. Other Desert Cities premiered at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in 2010, where it played to sold-out houses during its limited engagement run. It was named Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play by the Outer Critics Circle. The play moved to Broadway in 2011 and has just been released for production by non-union theatres. WICA is contemplating producing this piece in the 2014/2015 Season.
Other Desert Cities - Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history-a wound they don't want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.
