Other Desert Cities


Little Town Players in Bedford will present Other Desert Cities on March 16-18 and 23-25, 2018. One of the most poignant dramas of the last decade, was nominated for the 2012 Tony Award best play and was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.


"A daughter returns home for Christmas for the first time in years, bringing the manuscript of a memoir, which reveals a devastating episode in the life of her wealthy Republican family. Her beloved older brother, eldest child of the family in question, was involved in a radical group in the 1970's that bombed a draft center; the explosion killed a man and brought about the brother's suicide. The events, years in the past at the time of the play, emotionally ravaged the daughter, disturbed the upbringing of the younger son, a child when the events happened; opened a schism between the mother and her sisters; and shattered the orderly lives of the parents, causing their ostracism from an intimate circle of friends which includes President and Mrs. Reagan."


Director Denis F. Deane will hold open auditions on Sunday, January 28 and Monday. January 29, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the English Meadows - Elks Home Campus Theater. The show calls for 5 experienced actors: 1 male and 2 females who can play in their late 60's, 1 female in her late 30's early 40's, and 1 male in his early to mid 30's.


There are numerous demanding monologues for each cast member. The roles call for actors who thrive on character development, as all ranges of emotions are explored in this tightly crafted work.
