Background


Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Martyna Majok's Cost of Living receives its highly anticipated UK Premiere at Hampstead Theatre.


Hampstead Theatre's Artistic Director, Edward Hall, has directed many of Hampstead's greatest successes including the Olivier Award winning Sunny Afternoon, Chariots of Fire, Filthy Business and I and You.


Synopsis


John, a wealthy, brilliant, and successful PhD student with cerebral palsy, hires Jess, a recent graduate who has fallen on hard times, as his new carer.


Across town, truck driver Eddie attempts to support and re-engage with his estranged wife, Ani, following a terrible accident that has left her quadriplegic.


As four very different lives collide and entwine, roles are unapologetically flipped, reversed and exposed - who is actually caring for whom?


Martyna Majok's exquisitely original, honest and deftly funny new play explores our need to connect and be loved regardless of the gulfs that disability, race, class, and wealth place between us.
