The afternoon will feature the premiere public reading of Malpede’s new play, Other than We–a futuristic Climate-Fiction tragi-comedy for the Anthropocene age.

The evening will present excerpted readings from the anthology Plays in Time published by Intellect, 2017. Readings will include The Beekeeper’s Daughter, Prophecy, Another Life, and Extreme Whether by Theater Three Collaborative actors and contributors to the book: Kathleen Chalfant, Christen Clifford, Najla Said, and George Bartenieff.

Followed by a discussion about Theater Three Collaborative’s antiwar and ecojustice plays in the US and Europe with artists and scholars represented in the book. Panelists include theatre professors Marvin Carlson and Cindy Rosenthal, actor Kathleen Chalfant, and the theater’s founders–George
Bartenieff, and Karen Malpede, moderated by Frank Hentschker. There will be live music by Arthur Rosen.
