Here is what people said about the March 8-24, 2012, production at the Irondale Center, Brooklyn:
One of the reasons I was so interested in this play is that in many ways it reminds me of another really great piece of literature. Just as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein captures the terror of the French Revolution in a simple story, Karen Malpede’s Another Life compresses all the political tensions of the 9/11 era into the lives of just six characters. And just like Dr. Frankenstein, Malpede’s Handel makes “another life” after 9/11, one that changes everyone fatefully forever.
Darius Rejali, author Torture & Democracy
Your writing is like a lucid web of poetic consciousness. It was really stunning to behold so artful a presentation on so terrible a time in our civilization . You are a Truth teller and a bold witness. Your actors were stellar. Bravo for that ensemble. George deserves his own curtain call.
Kevin Augustine, artistic director, Lone Wolf Tribe
Another Life is the kind of play one hopes to experience but rarely gets the opportunity to. I was on the edge of my seat. I laughed and I cried. Karen Malpede and George Bartinieff have managed to characterize our life and times into actual believable characters as Dickens might have. Another Life brings us closer to a humanistic understanding of terrorism, 9/11, Abu Ghraib, and the political 1%, with wit, and humor and profound sensibility. With a great ensemble acting and a once in a lifetime tour de force performance by one of America's greatest actors George Bartenieff. Another Life is Pulitzer worthy.
Penny Arcade, performance artist, author
You MUST see this brave and brilliant work by Karen Malpede, George Bartenieff and Company! Your life depends on it! It is the story that needs to be told, especially now, when so many voices are silent.
Joan MacIntosh, Obie-Award-winning actress
Mark Danner, author
Great and important work!
Charlotte Phillips, Brooklyn for Peace
It’s a brilliant play; it is too brilliant for the culture. It should win a Pulitzer. It won’t, but it should.Judith Malina, The Living Theatre
