Other Desert Cities
Monday, we're talking about Pioneer Theatre Company's production of Other Desert Cities, a finalist for the 2011Pulitzer Prize. It's a drama that explores the dynamics of a family divided by politics and tragedy as the adult daughter prepares to publish her memoir. Among our guests is playwright Jon Robin Baitz, who says he was thinking a lot about his obligations to the real people he writes about. At its heart, it's a play about truth, perspective and humility in art and in life.
Pioneer Theatre Company's Other Desert Cities runs through November 9 at Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre. Tickets are available by calling 801-581-6961 or on-line at PioneerTheatre.org
