Cost Of Living

COST OF LIVING PLAYED ITS FINAL PERFORMANCE ON JULY 16, 2017

"Immensely haunting, in a gripping Manhattan Theatre Club production." -The New York Times
"Tremendous emotion flows in Martyna Majok’s exquisitely attuned play. The cast is as powerful as any now on a New York stage. If you don’t find yourself in someone onstage in ‘Cost of Living,’ you’re not looking.” -The New York Times
“DEEPLY MOVING, BRACING and HARROWING, ELICITING GASPS FROM THE AUDIENCE, with superb performances and pitch-perfect direction by Jo Bonney.” -The Hollywood Reporter
“A POWERFUL, BITTERSWEET PLAY ABOUT PEOPLE WHO NEED OTHER PEOPLE TO SURVIVE.” -Variety

Synopsis

Directed by Obie Award winner Jo Bonney, this achingly human and surprisingly funny play from exciting new voice Martyna Majok is about the forces that bring people together, the realities of facing the world with physical disabilities and how deeply we all need each other. Truck driver Eddie is struggling to rebuild a relationship with his estranged wife Ani and Jess is trying to navigate the day-to-day with John, her new boss in a job that she desperately needs. People are hard.

Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission

Cost of Living is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Lead support for Cost of Living is provided by the Ernst C. Stiefel Foundation. Additional support comes from the National Endowment for the Arts.
