Interview with Marjorie Prime’s Tony Jayawardena
What does it mean to be human in the modern age? Set in a world where technology has advanced to the point of creating lifelike holograms that help ease our grief and despair, Jordan Harrison's latest thought-provoking production, Marjorie Prime (at the Menier Chocolate Factory) asks difficult questions about what it means to be human and whether artificial intelligence can ever truly replace the human experience.

He also has an impressive list of television credits to his name, such as Ackley Bridge and The Crown.
