Everything in its proper place… Except the past.
It’s Christmas Eve in Palm Springs. Novelist Brooke Wyeth is back home to celebrate the holidays with her well-heeled parents, brother and aunt. But the long-awaited reunion is soon set alight by a bombshell – Brooke is to publish a tell-all memoir. Exposing the most painful chapter of the Wyeths’ buried past and threatening to destroy everything her famous parents hold dear, Brooke’s revelation pushes fractured family relations to the point of no return. Written by Jon Robin Baitz- Pulitzer Prize finalist and creator of hit TV series, Brothers & Sisters and contributor to The West Wing.

“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many seasons …leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated.” —NY Times.
