It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85 year old Marjorie, a jumble of disparate, fading memories has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the chance? This wondrous play explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits, if any, of what technology can replace.
