'Other Desert Cities' to be presented

Gallery Players will stage the Central Ohio premiere of Other Desert Cities, a 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama finalist, May 3-18 in its Roth/Resler Theater at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus, 1125 College Ave.

Performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays.

The play, written by Jon Robin Baitz, is the story of a family in conflict on Christmas Eve 2004. Daughter Brooke Wyeth has returned home to Palm Springs after six years, dredging up the family's tragic past and forcing them to come to terms with her soon-to-be-published memoir.
