Toronto: Tickets now on sale for The Village Players’ production of “Marjorie Prime”

Thursday, February 15, 2024

We can't wait till we open the doors for Village Players' latest production: award-winning playwright Jordan Harrison's Marjorie Prime, directed by Maureen Lukie, at The Village Playhouse from Friday, March 1, until Saturday, March 23.

This 2015 drama, a speculative tale set in the near future, begins with 85-year-old Marjorie who is coping with dementia. As her personal memories blend and fade, her family arranges for a new companion, Walter, who helps her reassemble her life’s moments, both big and small. Her daughter, Tess, and son-in-law, Jon, struggle with what such a companion should provide or know as they confront what is lost to time. As our society debates the value or threat AI poses, Marjorie Prime considers the extent to which human identity will be aided or replaced by technology and asks the question "What will we remember, and what will we forget, given the chance?". Are memories fact or protective fiction?

Advisory: This play depicts dementia and includes discussion of suicide

We will be celebrating Opening Night with our traditional wine and cheese.
