The Arts Club Theatre Company presents Cost of Living

10 Oct '19 to 04 Nov '19 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

    The Arts Club and Citadel Theatre are co-producing the Canadian premiere of Cost of Living, the 2018 Pulitzer Prize–winning work by Polish-American playwright Martyna Majok. Following its run in Vancouver, the show will play in Edmonton this winter.

    What does it mean to give care? A shave, a helping hand, and forgiveness in the face of faults. This award-winning play about relationships and living with physical disabilities is tucked with surprise humour. A wealthy student named John (Christopher Imbrosciano) is cared for by Jess (Bahareh Yaraghi), a young woman down on her luck, and Eddie (Ashley Wright) rebuilds an old bond by providing aid to his ex-wife, Ani (Teal Sherer). These achingly human stories delve into the social divides between people, even as they strive to help.

    The Arts Club’s Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran will direct this production. She said, “When I first read this Pulitzer Prize–winning play earlier this year, I fell in love right away. It’s a deeply poetic, heartfelt piece that deals with complex and thoughtful ideas. It explores loneliness, privilege, ability and disability, love and longing. I am suitably scared, excited, and thrilled to bring Martyna’s stunning words to life.”

    October 10–November 3, 2019
