October 14-29, 2016 Previews October 12 & 13 Garvin Theatre
Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her 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. As lives are examined and secrets are revealed, the question becomes whether the family will ever be able to come to terms with its shadowy past.
“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many seasons. In his most fully realized play to date, Mr. Baitz makes sure our sympathies keep shifting among the members of the wounded family portrayed here. Every one of them emerges as selfish, loving, cruel, compassionate, irritating, charming and just possibly heroic… leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated.” —The New York Times
