What's On

Marjorie Prime

Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison

 

BOOK ONLINE

 

 

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.

 

 

"Jordan Harrison's elegant, thoughtful and quietly unsettling drama... keeps developing in your head, like a photogenic negative, long after you have seen it... At some point, you realize that it's been landing skilfully targeted punch after punch, right where it hurts."

  -  The New York Times 

 

This clever and captivating new drama explores what it means to be human, the complicated nature of familial relationships and the moments in life that we might choose to forget, if given the chance.

Be prepared to get involved both in the on-stage action and audience participation, encouraging others and suggesting scenes for our games, finishing around 8:30pm.
Anyone can improvise! Ever wanted to try improv but you weren't sure whether or not it was for you? This free 2 hour intro to improvisation is designed for those who have never had any experience with improv or just want a fun night out.

What is Theatresports?

Theatresports™ is improvised theatre entertainment played as a spectator sport. Teams participate in multiple games of varying length inventing scenes from suggestions given by the audience. Everything is made up on the spot; the lights, music, dialogue, mime and song.

It is fast paced, unpredictable, and hilarious. Best of all, it’s fun.
