Other Than We

November 21, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - December 1, 2019 @ 4:30 PM


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.

Featuring a multi-award-winning writing, design and acting team that has collaborated for over three decades on eleven original projects:

The production stars Obie and Drama Desk award-winner George Bartenieff* (Broadway’s The Merchant of Venice, Fiddler on the Roof and Victor Kelmperer in I Will Bear Witness) as Opa, Lisa Birnbaum* (The White Devil, Red Bull Theatre Co; Elizabeth Taylor in Cleo, Alley Theatre directed by Bob Balaban; Sense and Sensibility, Bedlam) as Michelle, and Emily Fury Daly* (Indecent, Pittsburgh Public; As You Like It, American Players Theatre) as Eve and Tommie J. Moore* (Dare to Be Black, The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda, Cowboys) as Tenaka. *Appearing Courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.

With scenic design by Obie award-winner Donald Eastman, costume design by Excellence in Theater Tony Award winner Sally Ann Parsons, lighting design by Bessie award-winner Tony Giovannetti, sound and music design by Arthur Rosen, and movement by Beth Graczyk.
