About the event

In the not too distant future a service has been introduced to resurrect loved ones in holographic form. Eighty-five year old Marjorie has brought back her husband. But when he was 30. When they first fell in love…

Intimate in setting yet ambitious in scope, Marjorie Prime, like Spike Jonze’s film HER or sci-fi series Black Mirror, delves into a world of artificial intelligence and robotics and virtual assistants, but through the lens of the everyday, the everywoman and her family. It explores the benefits and joys that technology could bring but also the possible heartache. It raises poignant questions about the impression we leave on others, the details we remember, the stories we re-craft and the love we’re lucky to experience.

Written by Jordan Harrison (writer on the Netflix hit Orange is The New Black) and nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, this acclaimed Off-Broadway sensation arrives at Ensemble Theatre with a stellar cast led by award-winning director Mitchell Butel.

★★★★ "A neatly structured and deeply human story about love, loss, memory and what we leave behind... constantly intriguing"
