Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison
September 6 – 29
Directed by Kaitlyn Samuel

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year- old Marjorie—a jumble of disparate, fading memories—has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.”
“…a poignant portrayal of everyday existences, of unexceptional people given just enough characterizing detail to make us fear for their losing what individuality they have.” – New York Times

 

"We choose our plays with you in mind. Plays to delight and entertain you. Plays that celebrate the human spirit or illuminate the human condition beyond our own experience. Plays by authors who are recognized on the world stage and plays that will leave a lasting impression.”
- Clint Rebik,
Artistic Director
