Every week we will be sharing new plays by our Heal the Divide playwrights. This week’s play is The Last of Our Kind, by Hartford, Connecticut playwright Cody Daigle-Orians.
Since the election, one of the things I’ve heard most often is, “I can’t believe this is where we are; I can’t believe this is what we are.” So I wanted to write something that responded to that disbelief and took it to its extreme conclusion. “Last of Our Kind” is a sort of social horror sci-fi story, which I thought was the right spirit for our political times. There’s not much more to say about the play, other than a wish that it always remains fiction.
