Students and Seniors:
What would we remember, and what would we forget, if given the choice? It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie , a jumble of confused, fading memories, has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her. Marjorie's "Prime" relies on the information from her and her kin to develop a more complex understanding of his history. As their interactions deepen, the family begins to develop diverging recounts of their lives, drawn into the chance to reconstruct the often painful past. In this richly spare, wondrous play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits, if any, of what technology can replace.
The Chilliwack Players Guild announces an open audition call for Marjorie Prime, the Guild’s entry in the 2020 Theatre BC Fraser Valley Zone Festival and will be Directed by Ken Fynn.
Audition dates are Saturday, February 15th, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday, February 18th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Guildhall at 45530 Spadina Avenue in Chilliwack. Audition materials will be provided at the audition by the Director.
MARJORIE – 85.
WALTER – 30s.
TESS – 50’s. Marjorie’s daughter.
JON – 50’s. Marjorie’s son-in-law
Rehearsals will start as soon as casting is complete and run through to May 7, 8, 9, performance dates at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, and the Zone Festival, to be held in Langley, the week starting Victoria Day.
Auditioners should be aware that, should the play win the Best Production award at Zone, their commitment will continue to the Theatre BC Mainstage Festival in Port Alberni at the beginning of July.
