A Tampa Bay Area Premiere March 7 – April 1, 2018 WE THE PEOPLE…DEFY OUR OWN MORTALITY It’s the age of artificial intelligence. Eighty-five-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. “…keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you have seen it….” –The New York Times “clever in conceit, alive with humor, surprising in its turns, and terribly haunting by the time the lights go out.” – The New Yorker
