Other Desert CitiesSinead Cusack stars in Other Desert Cities a drama on family politics, love and redemption by celebrated playwright and screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz, writer of the American television series Brothers and Sisters. Opening for its UK premiere at the Old Vic with previews from 13th March 2014, the play introduces us to Brooke who returns to the family home in Palm Springs for the first time in six years, and she has some fiery news to give her Republican parents, brother and recovering alcoholic auntie. Directed by Lindsay Posner, who last directed The Winslow Boy at the Old Vic, this new production will be the first in a season to be presented in-the-round at The Old Vic.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
