July 27–August 12, 2017
by Jordan Harrison
directed by Mathew Green
Marjorie: Barbara Evans
Walter: Eric Beckley
Tess: Joi Hoffsommer
Jon: Gary Ambler
In a future not far from our own present, Marjorie looks back at her long life with the help of an artificial intelligence companion known as a "Prime." Some memories she keeps. Some she edits. Some she deletes. Marjorie lives with her daughter, Tess, and son-in-law, Jon. The couple does their best to care for Marjorie, despite Tess's unease with the Prime and her troubled relationship with her mother. This is a play about family, and about memory, and about what those words mean in an increasingly digital age.
"Jordan Harrison's play has all the hallmarks of the best science fiction: it's clever in conceit, alive with humor, surprising at turns, and terribly haunting by the time the lights go out." --Rollo Romig, New Yorker
