MARJORIE PRIME: INTRIGUING, MOVING, THOUGHTFUL
Prime Theater Productions, working on the intimate thrust stage of the Andrew Boss theatre inside the Park Square, has mounted an intriguing play set in a near future. Tess and husband Joe explore the use of holographic technology to provide memory care for Tess's aging mother, Marjorie. Problems arise when questions of which memories ought to be included in the holographic being. The play raises questions of how memories,ours and those of our family, may affect our own lives and the lives of our loved ones. Technology raises a whole new series of questions around decisions about which memories to hold close and even enrich and those memories we should cast aside. How do memories affect each of us and our authenticity? The play runs through late May and is well worth an evening.
