Manbites Dog offers dazzling, touching look at the future of aging
Jordan Harrison’s 2014 “Marjorie Prime” immediately dazzles the mind with speculation on future treatment of memory loss and aging.

In Marjorie Prime, Human Replicas Help the Living, But at What Cost?
In Manbites Dog’s 2015 production of Mr. Burns, humans display the capacity to take stories and create something greater from them. In Marjorie Prime, when primes do something else with our stories, we see a different vision of the future. Even after factoring in the post-apocalypse depicted in the former play, it’s hard to say which version is preferable.
