Watch this 90 second explainer video about the Menier Chocolate Factory’s UK premiere of Jordan Harrison’s hit play Marjorie Prime.
The video features the cast of the show – including Olivier Award winner Nancy Carroll (After the Dance) as Tess, stage and screen star Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax, The Mother) as Marjorie, Tony Jayawardena (The Father and The Assassin, England People Very Nice, East is East) as Jon, and Richard Fleeshman (Company, Ghost The Musical) as Walter.
Marjorie Prime is directed by Dominic Dromgoole, and is playing at the Menier Chocolate Factory until 6 May 2023.
Alongside Dromgoole in the creative team is Set & Costume Designer Jonathan Fensom, and Lighting Designer Emma Chapman.
Jordan Harrison was a 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist for Marjorie Prime, and the play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits – if any – of what technology can replace.
