COST OF LIVING

By Martyna Majok

In partnership with Citadel Theatre

October 10–November 3, 2019
Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre
Impactful drama connecting four lives

What does it mean to give care? A shave, a helping hand, and forgiveness in the face of faults. This 2018 Pulitzer Prize–winning play about relationships and living with physical disabilities is tucked with surprise humour. A wealthy student is cared for by a young woman down on her luck, and a man rebuilds an old bond by providing aid to his ex-wife. These achingly human stories delve into the social divides between people, even as they strive to help.
