The UK premier of Jordan Harrison’s acclaimed play
In this richly spare, wondrous play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
The play’s writer, Jordan Harrison, was a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Majorie Prime, and hailed by the New York Times as “a poignant portrayal of everyday existences”.
Dominic Dromgoole directs an all-star cast including Olivier and Evening Standard Award winner Nancy Carroll (After the Dance), stage and screen star Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax, The Mother), Tony Jayawardena (The Father and The Assassin, England People Very Nice, East is East), and Richard Fleeshman (Company, Ghost The Musical).
Marjorie Prime runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory from 3 March to 6 May 2023.
