In this bioethics-relevant play, set in the near future, “primes” are programmed to look, sound, and smile like our dearly departed. With young Walter, Marjorie recalls the good old days of their marriage despite the frustrations of her rapidly failing memory. He acts and feels like family, even as Marjorie’s own daughter seems less and less familiar. Jordan Harrison (writer for Orange is the New Black) wrote this inventive, intimate play about artificial intelligence, caregiving for those who are elderly or lonely, and the construction of memories.
