Island Theatre at Your House (or YoHo) is designed to bring theatre into your home (or your neighbor’s), creating a warm, friendly environment to share a meal and read a play with other Island Theatre fans. Bring your choice of a hot or cold dish, dessert or drinks for the meal (please find out from the host what’s needed) and Island Theatre will supply the play. Take on a character if you like, but there’s no pressure to perform if you prefer to watch and listen while others read as the play comes to life… in the living room.
Other Desert Cities: A once promising novelist returns home after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former members of the Reagan inner circle, her brother and her aunt. When Brooke announces she is about to publish a memoir focusing on an explosive chapter in the family’s history, the holiday reunion is thrown into turmoil as the Wyeths struggle to come to terms with their past.
This funny and searing play is filled with clever exchanges among family members who know exactly how to push one another’s buttons.
