"Other than We"...
is futuristic cli-fi, harrowing yet hope-filled. In development. Photos are of the first public reading of excerpts from the text at the Segal Theater, December 11, 2017. Met with great audience approval. We persist.
After the Deluge, the privileged live in a hermetically sealed Dome. But, the underground aquifer and food supply are running out. Outbreaks of hate are on the rise and surveillance is extreme. Two young women, an obstetrician-gynecologist and a neuroscientist, her lover, join forces with a refugee janitor who was once a physician, and an elderly renown linguist, in an unlikely plot to create a new, post-Homo sapiens species, other than we. The fate of life on earth hangs in the balance.
Other than We by Karen Malpede

We are excited to workshop this new play in the summer and to share it with you a soon as is possible. In many ways, this strangely hopeful futuristic drama with music is a sequel to Extreme Whether.
