Kailua Onstage Arts (KOA) presents Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison

 

This 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist play is a Hawaii premiere. Directed by Kevin Keaveney and starring Jo Pruden, Jim Aina, Hoku Gilbert and Marshall Camden.

 

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie examines her past, with the help of a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her — sometimes replacing her realities with idealized memories. Through deeply drawn characters—both real and artificial— author Jordan Harrison burrows into troubling questions of the digital age: What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship? Will we be any less human, once computers know us better than ourselves? This richly spare and wondrous play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
