Playwrights Horizons Extends Lois Smith-Led Marjorie Prime
The 2015 Pulitzer-finalist is written by Jordan Harrison.
Playwrights Horizons has extended the New York premiere of Jordan Harrison's 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist Marjorie Prime through January 24. The production is directed by Obie Award winner Anne Kauffman.
In Marjorie Prime, it's the age of artificial intelligence, and 86-year-old Marjorie has a handsome new companion who's programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. The play explores "the mysteries of human identity and the limits – if any – of what technology can replace."
The cast is made up of Noah Bean, Lisa Emery, Stephen Root, and two-time Tony Award nominee Lois Smith, who will reprise her role in the upcoming film adaptation of Marjorie Prime, written and directed by Michael Almereyda.
The production features scenic design by Laura Jellinek, costume design by Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
