In the not too distant future in the time of artificial intelligence, 85-year-old Marjorie, a woman whose memory is fading, is kept company by a handsome, younger version of her husband Walter, programmed to talk with her about her past. What would we choose to remember – or forget – about our life, if given the chance? Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer Prize Finalist Marjorie Prime explores the mystery of human memory and the, perhaps unlimited, promises of technology.
