Marjorie Prime

Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison





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.
