April 26 – May 19

Marjorie Prime follows octogenarian Marjorie, battling dementia, as her daughter Tess and son-in-law Jon introduce cutting-edge technology to their household called a Prime.
The Prime, which resembles Marjorie’s deceased husband, Walter, becomes a repository of memories selectively shaped by Tess and Jon. As Marjorie’s health declines, Tess grapples with aging, mortality, and the complex relationship with her mother. This captivating drama explores human, and digital, interpersonal relationships and challenges our perceptions of memory, identity, and loss.

The run time is approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.  The topics of dementia, grief, and suicide are part of this story.

Directed by Prologue’s Artistic Director Jason Tamborini, the cast includes Rosemary Regan (Marjorie), Gabriel Alejandro (Walter), Kimberly Gilbert (Tess), and Sam Lunay (Jon).

 

ABOUT PROLOGUE THEATRE
Prologue Theatre understands that it can be difficult, at times, to begin conversations about “certain topics” and focuses on presenting theatre that can serve as that starting point. Through theatrical performance, coupled with community discussion, we strive to challenge our community to examine and discuss their views of the world and those around them. Our focus is on those who are in the process of finding their own voice – whether 15 or 115 years old – and are looking for a place where they can hone those viewpoints by examining world issues within (and with) their community.
