Solana Beach, Calif. North Coast Repertory Theatre continues its highly successful Season 35 with the San Diego premiere of MARJORIE PRIME, hailed as “an elegant, thoughtful, quietly unsettling drama” by The New York Times. Written by Jordan Harrison, the play enjoyed triumphant runs in Los Angeles and New York and was a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for drama and won the 2016 Horton Foote Prize, which honors excellence in American theatre. Jordan Harrison is a playwright’s playwright. His work has premiered at some of the most prestigious regional theatres - and though he’s not yet 40, he has already amassed an impressive number of awards and fellowships. But Harrison has also found success in Hollywood, his play Marjorie Prime has been adapted into a film debuting at the Sundance Festival next year starring Jon Hamm, Tim Robbins, Geena Davis and Lois Smith.
