Marjorie Prime

by Jordan Harrison, directed by Krysta Dennis

October 12-14, 2018 (Fri-Sun)

With help from an intriguingly innovative technology in a future not far from our present, 85-year-old Marjorie examines her past, sometimes replacing her realities with idealized memories. Jordan Harrison’s thoughtful, spare, subtly shattering work, a 2015 Pulitzer finalist, explores the ways our humanity is shaped and warped by the mysterious ebbs and flows of memory. What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship?
