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

Written by Tennessee Williams
Directed by Gordon Edelstein
One of the greatest American plays finds new light in this critically lauded re-imagining of the classic story of a fragile family hanging its hopes on the arrival of a “gentleman caller.”
Two-time Tony Award-winner Judith Ivey features in director Gordon Edelstein’s sparkling new production that makes this Menagerie as fresh and vital and sadly magical as its original 1944 debut.
