Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison
Performances September 8, 9, 15, 16
Directed by Oralya Garza
-In the near future technology has made it possible to create an android of a lost loved one. These are called Primes. We first meet the Prime of Marjorie's dead husband and learn that the AI takes its cues not only from the original input of memories, but develops connections and memories as it interacts with the living friends and family members. This leads to flawed or fabricated pasts that may never have existed. Too the Prime is created to look like the strongest memory of them. So in this case Marjorie who is in her 70s has a Prime in his 30s. Marjorie's daughter is uncomfortable and distrustful of Primes, while her husband advocates for supporting her mother's decisions.
Welcome to the White Room by Trish Harnetiaux
Performances October 21, 22, 28, 29
Directed by Leo Poroshin
- The room is completely white. We discover Ms. White, Jennings, and Mr. Paine shortly after they have arrived, and follow their journey as they attempt to figure out exactly what they are meant to be doing. There are letters that only Ms. White can read. There is the arrival of The Last Deck of Cards in the World – and with, at all times, one-thing-leading-to-another – somewhere between throwing a party, suppressing sexual tensions, and dancing a tango – this senseless world summons its puppeteer, who’s in for a big surprise.
Fight Girl Battle World by Qui Nguyen
Performances March 16, 17, 23, 24
Directed by Ixion Artistic Director Jeff Croff
- The last human in the universe, E-V, has been hiding out in the galactic battle arenas, but the General who destroyed all the humans on Earth has tracked her down. She deals with low-life fight promoters, multi-armed killing machines. Snarky androids and other tried and true space opera schlock. Meanwhile the rebels are striking blow after blow upon an empire and taking no prisoners.
