Hot Summer Nights at The Desert Rose Playhouse

Party, the hilarious Off-Broadway smash hit about 7 friends who play “truth or dare” at a party… and wind up revealing everything!

The wildly popular comedy depicts a group of gay men getting together for their regular evening of drinks and games. Tonight, the game is a gay version of “Truth or Dare” called “Fact Or Fantasy”. True-life stories are shared, fictional encounters related, and fantasies often require the player to remove some clothing. By the end of the evening, everyone is nude – laughing and dancing together in a great show of brotherhood.

Playwright David Dillon says, “Party is not about flesh, but celebrates the fact that, as a group, we are positive and honest about our sexuality and free from a lot of the inhibitions and hang ups that exist in other groups.”

Party has a terrific wide appeal. According to a cast member, “They come for the nudity, but come again because it is such a funny, positive and affirming event. We’ve had gay men, straight couples, bachelorette parties, and all sorts of people in the audience and

everyone has a great time!”

Talented performer John Fryer and young Los Angeles actor Jacob Betts as the naïve gay newcomer “Andy” join Desert Rose Playhouse company members Miguel Arballo, Jason Hull, Allan Jensen, Kam Sisco and Robbie Wayne.

Party plays now through July 31.For tickets and info visit


Coming to a Theatre Near You, Sweetie-Darlings

Appropriate for their big screen debut, Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to: shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots.

But when they accidentally push Kate Moss into the River Thames at an über-fashionable launch party, Eddy and Patsy become entangled in a media storm surrounding the supermodel’s untimely demise and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie,’ directed by Mandie Fletcher and produced by Jon Plowman and Damian Jones, will released by Fox Searchlight Pictures in the US on July 22nd, 2016. Check your listings for times and dates in Palm Springs.
