Summary
""A thought-provoking play about memory, its corruption and our insistence that technology help us outwit death."--The New York Times. "It's the kind of experience that keeps unfolding in the mind long after the play is over."--Los Angeles Times. In a future not far from our present, Marjorie spends her time rewriting her past in favor of her idealized memories, with help from the intriguingly innovative technology that allows her to do so. With deeply felt characters - both real and in the form of holograms or "Primes"--Jordan Harrison's widely acclaimed new play burrows into the most troubling questions of the digital age: are we replacing our memory with a false reality, and what does that mean about the preservation of the truth? Marjorie Prime ultimately asks whether manipulating our past is a corruption of history or a welcome consolation. Jordan Harrison's other plays include Maple and Vine, Doris to Darlene, Amazons and their Men, Act a Lady, Finn in the Underworld, Futura, Kid-Simple, The Museum Play, Standing on Ceremony, Suprema, and Fit for Feet. His children's musical, The Flea and the Professor, won the 2011 Barrymore Award for Best Production. Harrison is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University, a Theater Masters' Innovative Playwright Award, the Kesselring Prize, the Heideman Award, the Loewe Award for Musical Theater, Jerome and McKnight Fellowships from The Playwrights' Center, and a NEA/TCG Playwright-in-Residence Grant"--
