The LSU School of Theatre will open its 2017-18 Studio Season with "Marjorie Prime" at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 26 in the Studio Theatre in the Music and Dramatic Arts Building on Dalrymple Drive.
Performances will follow Sept. 27-29 at 7:30 p.m. with two performances at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 1. Admission is $12.
The play focuses on 85-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — who has a handsome new companion 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, new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace. The show is directed by Rachel Aker.
