It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie examines her past, with the help of a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her — sometimes replacing her realities with idealized memories. Through deeply drawn characters—both real and artificial— author Jordan Harrison burrows into troubling questions of the digital age: What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship? Will we be any less human, once computers know us better than ourselves? This richly spare and wondrous play, a Finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize,explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
