Self-righteous Brooke Wyeth (Dana Brooke), carts her tell-all memoir to her parents' home in Palm Springs, hoping for a blessing from them, but gets a blasting instead. The play combines conflicting family dynamics with blunt sarcastic humor, which puts some fun in dysfunctional. Talented cast, including Brooke and Joan Grant, who create caustic chemistry as mother and daughter. Th, F, 8pm; Sa 5 & 9pm; Su 2pm; Tu 6:30pm; W 2 & 6:30pm. Through 9/29. $25-$35.
