Many families have skeletons in the closet. When someone in the family decides they want to let the skeletons out, that’s usually when a world of problems pops up...
If families existed without conflict, stress, heartbreak, and deception—and if those difficulties weren’t often laced with great wit—many wonderful plays would never have been written.
One excellent example: Jon Robin Baitz’s Other Desert Cities, which opens April 4th at Silver Spring Stage. It’s the compelling story of a specific family – the Wyeths of Palm Springs, California.
