A multi award-winning story of survival

Martyna Majok’s moving and impassioned investigation of human connection and life in an increasingly inaccessible world has its Australian premiere. Featuring and co-directed by Dan Daw (The Dan Daw Show), this brand new production will also feature Kate Hood (Escaped Alone and What If If Only) and Olivier Award-winning Philip Quast (Do not go gentle…).

Nominated for four Tony Awards for its smash-hit run on Broadway, and the winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Cost of Living follows the development of two relationships. Ani, who became quadriplegic after a serious car accident, reconnects with her estranged husband Eddie who is battling feelings of guilt and loneliness. John, a wealthy Princeton student with cerebral palsy, hires Jess, a woman juggling multiple jobs just to stay afloat, as his carer.

In a series of intriguing and stirring vignettes, Majok carefully teases out the nuanced power dynamics, pathos and humour of these characters’ lives, whilst also painting a vivid portrait of austerity in the twenty-first century.

Daw joins forces with co-director Priscilla Jackman, the directorial mind behind 2022’s smash hit RBG: Of Many, One, to bring you one of the best pieces of new writing to emerge from the US in the last decade. At once urgently contemporary and timeless in its humanity, Cost of Living is an essential theatrical experience, not to be missed.
