New 'Eco-Drama' EXTREME WHETHER Runs Now thru 10/26 at TNC
by BWW News Desk - Oct 2, 2014

'Extreme Whether,' a new 'eco-drama' written and directed by Karen Malpede, centers on an embattled American climate scientist living in an idyllic wilderness estate in the Northeast Coast.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 20, 2013

George Bartenieff plays an out-sized captain of industry who privatizes and is ultimately undone by state-sponsored torture in 'Another Life,' written and directed by Karen Malpede, a surreal play that is based on real post-9/11 events.
