Victor Williams, Jolly Abraham, and More Set for Cost of Living
Casting is set for the Manhattan Theatre Club's New York premiere of Martyna Majok's Cost of Living, which begins performances May 16 at New York City Center – Stage I.
The company will be made up of Jolly Abraham as Jess, Gregg Mozgala as John, Katy Sullivan as Ani, and Victor Williams as Eddie. Jo Bonney directs.
Cost of Living tells the story of four very different people in four very different circumstances, each trying to get by. Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, reunites with his ex-wife Ani after she suffers a devastating accident. John, a brilliant and witty doctoral student, hires overworked Jess, a caregiver. As their lives intersect, Majok’s play delves into the chasm between abundance and need and explores the space where bodies — abled and disabled — meet each other.
The creative team for Cost of Living includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Jessica Pabst (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Robert Kaplowitz (sound design), and Thomas Schall (movement consultant). The production is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival, where it premiered last summer.
