Take Care

After wowing at the Williamstown Theatre Festival last year, Cost of Living makes it New York Premiere courtesy of Manhattan Theatre Club. Directed by Jo Bonney, the cast includes Victor Williams (The Affair) and Jolly Abraham (Coram Boy).

Written by Martyna Majok, whose previous work Ironbound played Rattlesticks Playwrights Theatre, this darkly comic piece follows a set of four characters dealing with physical disabilities and heavy emotional baggage. Truck driver Eddie sits alone at a bar, recalling memories of his ex-wife Ani, who was injured in a car accident, while overworked caregiver Jess takes on the task of looking after cerebral palsy sufferer John. As their storylines converge, the play explores our understanding of disability and the cost of caring for the ones you love.
