Marjorie Prime By Jordan Harrison

Jan 13 @ 7:30 pm - Jan 22 @ 2:00 pm

Jordan Harrison's "Marjorie Prime" in Des Moines January 13 - 22, 2017

Marjorie Prime – January 13-22, 2017 Iowa Premiere
By Jordan Harrison

Generously sponsored by Iles Funeral Homes  

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous 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.” – Los Angeles Times

Thank you to our show sponsor Iles Funeral Homes for their incredible support.
