“The best new play on Broadway.” - New York Times

After a six year absence, Brooke Wyeth returns to her Reaganite parents’ Palm Springs enclave for the holidays. But the warm desert air turns chilly when news of her upcoming memoir threatens to revive a scandal long forgotten. Perception and reality grapple with love and mercy as old family wounds are opened, childhood memories are tested and the Wyeth clan learns that some secrets cannot stay buried forever. Full of surprisingly touching moments, Pulitzer Prize nominee Jon Robin Baitz (A Fair Country), brings dysfunctional family drama to new heights in this witty, deeply enjoyable work NY1 called "one of the best new plays of the decade.”
