Twenty years ago, Mark David Major wrote three plays in a burst of creative activity over a three-year period. The first of these plays, The Persistence of Memory, premiered during a short, successful run at a historic St. Louis area theatre in May 1992. Twenty years later, the author revisited and updated these plays so they could be discovered by a new generation of readers and patrons of the theatre in The Persistence of Memory and Other Plays. The plays of Mark David Major perfectly embody the didactic nature of Generation X at its best and worst on the themes of romantic love and emotional honesty. It is characterized by a purity of perspective tinted with a cynicism wise beyond its years and a raw emotionalism carefully veiled under a mask of social indifference. These plays give voice to an entire generation, the children of a revolution…
