An official opening night is set for Dec. 14 at Playwrights Horizons’ Mainstage Theater, with performances scheduled to run through Jan. 3, 2016.
The show is set in the age of artificial intelligence and follows an aging woman as she grapples with her past. "86-year-old Marjorie (Smith) – a jumble of disparate, fading memories – has a handsome new companion (Bean) 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?" ask press notes. "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."
As previously reported, the play is currently being adapted into a film starring Smith, Jon Hamm, Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, among others.
Playwrights Horizons’ Mainstage Theater is located at 416 West 42nd St. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit PlaywrightsHorizons.org.
