Other Desert Cities
by Jon Robin Baitz

Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother, and 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. A surprising twist is revealed as she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it. Searing comedy and clever exchanges among family members makes this one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade.

Finalist for 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
2012 Tony Award nomination for Best Play




Actors’ Theatre will award two scholarships of $500 to individuals who, by their contributions to theatre, have demonstrated ability, talent and dedication to theatre arts. Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Enrollment in an accredited college or training program, with preference given to a Theatre Arts major

  • Work experience at Actors’ Theatre, either on stage or behind the scenes

Actors’ Theatre may contact finalists for an interview during June/July 2015 to determine the recipient. The board of directors will base its decision on information contained in the application, any attached documentation, and, if conducted, the interview. Actors’ Theatre will announce the winning recipients by July 17, 2015, and will grant the award after verifying the candidate’s academic enrollment.

Because this is an annual competitive award, previous recipients must reapply each year. No person is eligible to receive the award more than two times.
