Casting has been announced for the upcoming Arena Stage production of Jon Robin Baitz's family drama Other Desert Cities. The play will run April 26-May 26, with direction by Helen Hayes Award winner Kyle Donnelly.

Tony Award nominee and two-time Helen Hayes Award winner (Hedda Gabler) and two-time Emmy Award winner Larry Bryggman (Harvey) will lead the cast, which will also feature Emily Donahoe (33 Variations), Scott Drummond (Cherry Lane Theatre's A Perfect Future), and Martha Hackett (Pacific Resident Theatre's Nora).

In Other Desert Cities, a once-promising novelist comes home for the holidays with a manuscript exploring an explosive chapter in the family's history. The memoir opens old family wounds and tests childhood memories as the Wyeth clan learns that some secrets cannot stay buried forever.
