This week, the Indiana Repertory Theatre opens its latest production. From the creator of TV's Brothers & Sisters, the IRT brings Other Desert Cities, to the OneAmerica stage. IRT's Playwright-in-Residence, James Still, returns to Indianapolis to direct the play. Lawrence Pressman, best known for his roles in TV's Doogie Howser, M.D., is among the cast. The story is about a daughter, returning home for the holidays. She announces she is about to publish a controversial memoir of her family that digs up a family tragedy. As the family struggles to come to terms with the past, betrayals are unmasked as well as unconditional love. The play runs from March 12 - April 5 and may contain strong language. Tickets are $25 - $55.
