Middle-aged assimilated American Charlie returns home to his native Dublin to sort through and come to terms with his relationship to this thoroughly beguiling, maddening presence in his life: "Da." Reminiscence gives way to memory and illusion as an adolescent "Charlie Then" is brought back from the past, while the man who is "Charlie Now" grapples with his own mortality and the part of his life that will always be the irrasicible "Da." A great success in its original Broadway production, subsequent revivals have proven this play a classic.

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? In this richly spare, wondrous new play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
"Jordan Harrison’s elegant, thoughtful and quietly unsettling drama… keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you have seen it...At some point, you realize that it’s been landing skillfully targeted punch after punch, right where it hurts." - The New York Times.
"Jordan Harrison’s play…has all the hallmarks of the best science fiction; it’s clever in conceit, alive with humor, surprising in its turns, and terribly haunting by the time the lights go out." - The New Yorker
Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison is is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC

For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the “fun of the thing,” Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak-minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate. They place the body in a wooden chest, and to add spice to their handiwork, invite a few acquaintances, including the dead youth’s father, to a party…all the while daring their guests to uncover their horrible crime. A murder mystery in reverse that inspired the Hitchcock classic..
