The world premiere of this touching drama from playwright Jordan Harrison -- who currently writes for Netflix's hit series Orange Is the New Black -- features an all-star cast that includes Tony Award nominee Lois Smith (True Blood, Twister) in the title role, Lisa Emery (Louie, Law & Order), Jeff Ward (Body of Proof) and Tony winner Frank Wood (The Newsroom, Flight of the Conchords, Changeling). A compelling and exquisitely crafted tale of memory, loss and love, this poignant drama explores uncharted theatrical terrain in its tale of Marjorie -- a clever woman who, at 85 years old, finds that her memory is failing. Residing in an assisted living facility, Marjorie enjoys frequent visits from her anxious daughter and kind son-in-law ... and soon she'll begin receiving visitations from a mysterious young man named Walter, who hopes to help reverse Marjorie's decline. Told through a series of shifting realities, Marjorie Prime poses thought-provoking questions about the nature of loss, memory and reality in an age of artificial intelligence. Learn More

This is a highly entertaining, sharply-paced, smart play. You won't be disappointed. The ACTING is amazing! The play itself is slightly didactic and skewed in one direction, but it still gets you to think. Clever effects, too. A fun evening out, overall.

Great show. Didn't know what to expect from it, but Taper has had an amazing season this year so I just bought a ticket and went. Glad I did! Exceptional acting, stunning set, and a play that left me thinking about time, the universe, and everything.
