A powerful story about aging, memory, and artificial intelligence. Set in the not too distant future, Marjorie is starting to lose her memories to dementia. Her daughter and son in law employ the assistance on an A.I. program to help her cope and keep her out of a home. In this richly spare 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 photographic negative, long after you have seen it…At some point, you realize that it’s been landing skillfully targeted punch after punch, right where it hurts.”
–The New York Times
“Marjorie Prime…is primarily concerned with something eternal: the way our humanity is shaped and warped by the mysterious ebbs and flows of memory.”
