The Black Swamp Players will continue its 54th season with Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-nominated play, “Marjorie Prime.”

“Marjorie Prime,” directed by Heath A. Diehl, takes us into the not-too-distant future, in the time of artificial intelligence. Marjorie (Fran Martone) is an 85-year-old woman whose memory is fading. She is kept company by a handsome, younger version of her husband Walter (Jake Spencer), who is programmed to talk with her about her past. 

Also seen in the play are Tess (Nina Wright), Marjorie’s daughter, and Jon (Jonathan Chambers), Marjorie’s son-in-law. 

In this beautifully scripted play, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits, if any, of what technology can replace.

“Marjorie Prime” will be performed Dec. 2, 3, 9, and 10 at 8 p.m. and Dec. 4 and 11 at 2 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain time.

Tickets are $20 for general admission seating and are available online at  or at the door. 

All performances will take place at the Players’ newly renovated performance venue at 115 E. Oak Street, Bowling Green.
