    Name: Other Desert Cities
    Date: April 11, 2019 - April 14, 2019
    Event Description:
    Rome Community Theater will present “Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz April 11-14 at the theater on Upper Turin Road. Produced with permission by Dramatists Play Service, Inc., the production will star several of the areas most talented actors. Richard K. Stoodley, Linda LaPorte, Valerie Abel, Eileen Tiller Clanton, and Tim Huey will portray the members of a family haunted by a tragedy that they are unable to overcome. How they deal with this individually and as a family makes this a story that is as pertinent today as when it takes place in 2004. In the 1970s, writing about how a family shaped one's life was part of a cultural revolution that continues today. The memoir written about this family includes politics, addiction, reputations, and secrets. It threatens to shatter the lives of everyone involved. The members of this family must decide whether or not it will break them and what they must do to survive. Denise Borek Morganti is directing this drama which has elements of humor. The assistant director is Eric Almleaf. The show will be presented Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 and at 2:30 on Sunday. Reservations are strongly recommended. Please call 315 337-5920 for reservations or more information.
