Theater Voices Present Staged Reading of “Marjorie Prime”

Theater Voices will present a staged reading of Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison, directed by Krysta Dennis, on Friday, Oct. 12 at 8pm; Saturday, Oct. 13 at 3pm and 8pm; and Sunday, Oct. 14 at 3pm at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue, Albany.  House opens one half-hour before performance. Admission is free.

With help from an intriguingly innovative technology in a future not far from our present, 85-year-old Marjorie examines her past, sometimes replacing her realities with idealized memories. Jordan Harrison’s thoughtful, spare, subtly shattering work, a 2015 Pulitzer finalist, explores the ways our humanity is shaped and warped by the mysterious ebbs
and flows of memory. What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship?

The cast features Carol Charniga, Evan Jones, Josephine O’Connor and Dennis Schebetta. Stage manager is Eleah Peal.
