If you were born in 1977, like playwright Jordan Harrison (who also writes for Orange Is the New Black), then you'll be eighty-five in 2062—the age of the title character in Harrison's unsettling drama, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 2015. Even if we've sorted out Alzheimer's disease by then, you still may find yourself experiencing some problems with your memory, and, given the deaths of friends and family members, some depression would be understandable. But don't worry. Technology will have developed the Prime, a life-size replacement that can be fashioned to look like, and house, the memories of anyone—including you. Manbites Dog Theater artistic director Jeff Storer takes us to a likely near future, with a cast including Lenore Field, Derrick Ivey, Marcia Edmondson, and Michael Brocki. —Byron Woods
