Theater Three Collaborative Written & Directed By Karen Malpede
A climate fiction fable with music that moves from dystopia to astonishing hope. Three scientists and a linguist risk their lives to create new life on earth.
Other Than We, is a cli-fi fable that weaves a vital response to the climate crisis, attacks on immigrants, reproductive rights, and gender-fluidity into a suspenseful, funny, scary, ultimately triumphant and joyful tale of the birth of a new vision.
An utterly original work from Theater Three Collaborative, known for tackling hard issues in poetic, witty and character-driven drama.
