A Cli-fi fable with music that moves from a dystopian reality to astonishing hope. Other Than We is a futurist adventure in which four scientists risk their lives to create new life on earth. Two women lovers, an obstetrician and a neuroscientist, concoct a daring plan with a refugee physician from Africa, and kidnap an elderly inquist to assist. Other Than We is an ecofeminist fable that weaves a daring response to the climate crisis.
"A pioneering and brave effort by playwright and director Karen Malpede to use theater to explore the clashing passions around human-driven global warming and our fossil fuel fixation."
-Andrew Revkin for The New York Times (in regards to Extreme Whether)
“Karen Malpede imagines a better world”
- Brad Rothbart interviews Karen Malpede for American Theatre Magazine (in regards to The Bee Keeper’s Daughter)
