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.

BWW Exclusive: On COST OF LIVING- Disability and Representation On StageBWW Exclusive: On COST OF LIVING- Disability and Representation On Stage
by BWW News Desk - July 7, 2017

I was sent the script of Cost of Living by Martyna Majok the week of Valentine's Day 2016. I burned through it in one sitting. First impressions were that this was not your average project 'about disability' - this writer had a very unique voice and was using it to say some pretty profound stuff. When people ask me what the show is about, I have a hard time boiling it down to a sound bite - and my opinion keeps changing. It's about the act of providing care to someone and how that changes the dynamic of a relationship and surviving something 'tragic,' but at what COST? It's a beautiful dance between two seemingly unrelated stories, each with a person who needs care and a caregiver. It's about two relationships - one is brand new and the other has run its course. It explores those with means and those just trying to make ends meet, and all the stuff in-between that 'is not to be understood.' (more...)
