Ethics and the Theater Encore: Cost of Living by Martyna Majok (Online)
January 23 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
UPDATE: Out of an abundance of caution, this month’s two sessions of Ethics and the Theater have moved entirely online via Zoom. We hope to return to in-person readings and discussions as soon as possible.
Our long-running staged reading and discussion series continues with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cost of Living by Martyna Majok:
Truck driver Eddie struggles to reconnect with his estranged and partially paralyzed wife, Ani. Jess, overeducated and underemployed, takes a job assisting John, a graduate student with cerebral palsy and an only partly merited sense of entitlement. In her unsentimental, blackly funny Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Martyna Majok unspools the stories of these mismatched pairs in parallel, until their paths dramatically and poignantly, intersect.
Performed by Mary Theresa Archbold, Daniel Damiano, Christopher Imbrosciano, and Valerie Terranova. Directed by Kathy Gail MacGowan.
After the play, member Betsy Ungar will moderate an open discussion about the ethical issues raised and explored in the work. Member Patricia Bruder Debrovner produces.
