Twin City Players

The Twin City Players announces the second show of its 2019-2020 Mainstage Season, the compelling, nostalgic, and deeply imaginative Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison.

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie - a jumble of disparate, fading memories - has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits - if any - of what technology can replace. Marjorie Prime was a 2015 Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama for Jordan Harrison.

Tickets are $12-$15 (plus a $1 fee per ticket). Group rates are available. All seats reserved. Purchase tickets online at twincityplayers.org or through the TCP box office at 269-429-0400.

Performances are October 25 - November 10, 2019, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2 pm at the TCP Playhouse, 600 W. Glenlord Road, St. Joseph. Marjorie Prime is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
