This play is a Pulitzer-winner from Martyna Majok presenting the beauty and cost of caring for a fellow person. From the difficulties of in-home care to the financial challenges associated with disability, Cost of Living is rich in heart, honesty, and humour. In Cost of Living, we meet Eddie and Ani, an estranged couple trying to keep each other afloat. Eddie is a recovering alcoholic, and Ani uses a wheelchair after a car accident. Meanwhile, John, a brilliant Princeton PhD student with cerebral palsy has hired Jess, a Princeton grad struggling to make ends meet, as an in-home caretaker. The two relationships show the truth of people striving to care for another human, abled or disabled, before coming together in a surprising conclusion that will keep you talking long after the curtain falls. Cost of Living features international stars of the stage and screen, and renowned disability advocates, Teal Sherer (My Gimpy Life) and Christopher Imbrosciano (Cost of Living off-Broadway premiere, The Good Wife), and welcomes back Ashley Wright (Sweat, A Christmas Carol) and Bahareh Yaraghi (The Kite Runner, Shakespeare in Love). Recommended ages: 14+. Runs until Feb. 3 in the Shoctor Theatre, Citadel Theatre complex, 9828 – 101A Ave. For tickets and details, visit: www.citadeltheatre.com or phone 780-425-1820.
