Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison
April 5-22, 2018

Wisconsin Premiere

Directed by Jennifer Uphoff Gray

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, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.

“[An] elegant, thoughtful and quietly unsettling drama…. This production keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you’ve seen it.”
