Earth Institute Unbroken Circle: LIVE Cli-Fi Play Reading - "Other Than We"

July 26, 2020
DESCRIPTION: Join host Andy @Revkin of the Earth Institute, the ecofeminist playwright Karen Malpede and a fabulous cast in a live-streamed brunch-time reading of Malpede's play "Other Than We," which premiered at Manhattan's La Mama Theater just before the COVID-19 lockdown.

The play, with humor and intensity, explores the limits of life’s meanings and relationships in a climate-changed world where our species pushes biological boundaries in an effort to persist. In other words, it's right out of the headlines on climate change, CRISPR genetic technology and our pandemic challenge.

The online cast is George Bartenieff, Emily Fury Daly, Beth Malone and Tommie J. Moore. All perform courtesy of The Theater Authority, AEA.

We'll have a brief chat at the end with Malpede centering on your typed questions and comments.
