Pass Area Performing Artists (PAPA)
By Jon Robin Baitz
Directed by Julie Labagnara
The play's name refers to a city guide sign on eastbound Interstate 10, which indicates that the freeway is headed towards Indio, California and "other Desert Cities" (the Coachella Valley.) The play's events occur around the Christmas 2004 holiday, when the family of Polly and Lyman Wyeth gather in Palm Springs, California.
"The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many seasons…In his most fully realized play to date, Mr. Baitz makes sure our sympathies keep shifting among the members of the wounded family portrayed here. Every one of them emerges as selfish, loving, cruel, compassionate, irritating, charming and just possibly heroic…leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated." — NY Times.
"Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising." — NY Daily News. "Spending time with these messed-up, complicated people is a genuine pleasure." — NY Post. "Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blow darts of wit—this is what Baitz does best." — New York Magazine.
