At the Museum of Late Human Antiquities, the curators are fiercely committed to bringing a lost civilization to life again: What were humans really like? What did they wear, what did they eat, how did they die out? By casting us into the far future, Jordan Harrison’s new play gives us an uncanny view of the present moment, as we straddle the analog world that was and the post-human world to come.

Marjorie Prime, Jordan Harrison’s elegant, thoughtful and quietly unsettling drama… keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you’ve seen it. Written and performed with exquisite carefulness, [it] succeeds handily as a piece of futuristic speculation, as a rumination on technology… More important, Mr. Harrison’s play succeeds as a poignant portrayal of everyday existences, of unexceptional people given just enough characterizing detail to make us fear for their losing what individuality they have.” 
— The New York Times

 

Filled with dazzling wordplay, archaic vocabulary, and odd malapropisms, the theatrical worlds of Jordan Harrison lift language off the page and into three-dimensional space, creating a universe that is surreal and sublime, brainy and beautiful — and wholly his own.”
