Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison
Directed by Jared Mola
Production Dates: October 6 – 22, 2017
In the not-too-distant future and the age of artificial intelligence, 85-year-old Marjorie is trying to cope with the loss of her deceased husband through the use of a prime, an exact replica programmed to interact with her in human-like ways. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? Would we rewrite the past? This play explores loss and memory, the mysteries of human identity and the limits (if any) of what technology can replace. This play was a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Run time: 80 minutes – No intermission.
