"Not since Spike Jonze's Her has humanity's uneasy embrace of seductive technology been given such soulful contemplation." - The Hollywood Reporter
Join Off Square Theatre for a screening of the award-winning film MARJORIE PRIME, directed by Michael Almereyda. The screening will be followed by a discussion on the themes of the film and play, including technology, aging, and what it means to move-on from loss. Talkback led by Nicole Madison Garrett. Attendees are invited to purchase a copy of the play and read in advance.
In the near future, a time of artificial intelligence: 86-year-old Marjorie (veteran actress Lois Smith- TWISTER, TRUE BLOOD, DEAD MAN WALKING) – a jumble of disparate, fading memories – has a handsome new companion (Jon Hamm- MAD MEN, BABY DRIVER) who looks like her deceased husband and is programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? Also starring Academy Award®-winners Geena Davis (THELMA & LOUISE) and Tim Robbins (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, MYSTIC RIVER), MARJORIE PRIME is based on Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-Nominated play, exploring memory and identity, love and loss.
Marjorie Prime is presented as part of Off Square 2nd Act - Theatre for Lifelong Learners - and supported by the Center of Wonder.
