Marjorie Prime

 By Jordan Harrison

 

Synopsis:

“What would we remember, and what would we forget, if we had the chance?  80-year-old Marjorie - a jumble of disconnected, fading memories - has a handsome new companion. He looks remarkably like a young version of her deceased husband and is always on hand to feed the story of her life back to her. Set in the near future, a time of blossoming artificial intelligence, Marjorie Prime is Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer nominated play (2015), exploring memory and identity, love, loss and what we leave behind."
