Glacity Theatre Collective to explore artificial intelligence

It’s the age of artificial intelligence, and 85-year-old Marjorie — a jumble of disparate, fading memories — has a handsome new companion who’s programmed to feed the story of her life back to her.

The Glacity Theatre Collective will present “Marjorie Prime” Friday through Sunday, May 12-14, in the Center for Performing Arts Studio Theatre.

Mark Owen and Jennifer Nagy Lake rehearsed a scene from the Glacity Theatre Collective’s production of “Marjorie Prime” with Barbara Barkan in the background.

Curtain time is 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Barbara Barkan will play Marjorie, and Tanner DuVall will be her friend in Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-nominated work that explores memory and identity, love and loss, and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.

Jennifer Nagy Lake, former UT theatre student, and Mark Owen also are in the cast.

Jeffrey J. Albright, former UT theatre student, is directing the production.

James S. Hill, UT professor emeritus of theatre, is the scene designer for the play. Holly Monsos, associate dean of the School of Visual and Performing Arts in the College of Arts and Letters, professor of theatre, and executive director of the Glacity Theatre Collective, designed the costumes.

Tickets are $15 at the door or in advance online at glacity.tix.org. Student tickets are $10 with a valid ID and are available only at the door.
