Is this a cli-fi thriller or an experimental monster?

By Andrew Andrews

In a dystopian future, civilization has been divided into those that live under a protective dome, and those relegated or exiled to the outside world and its temperamental climate.

Believing that mankind has lost its ability to empathize, scientists Eve and Michelle have decided to create a new, genetically-modified race of semi-humans, carefully giving them the attributes needed to survive after homo sapiens achieves self-extinction.

Part science-fiction, part experimental theatre, Other Than We follows the trials and tribulations of the couple, their mysterious co-conspirator Tenaka, and Eve’s dissident grandfather Opa, as they play god under the watchful eye of disapproving powers-that-be.
