About this show

From the one-woman dynamo who brought the Obie Award-winning No Child… to Woolly in 2008 comes a rich slice of Puerto Rican immigrant life. If you've ever seen Nilaja Sun's virtuosic performance style, you'll want to experience it again…and if you haven't, you must not miss the chance to be transported to Pike St.

On the Lower East Side, a mother works hard to keep the electricity flowing for her daughter's respirator while a hurricane looms nearby. As she prepares for disaster, a vibrant host of characters—a decorated war veteran, her ne'er-do-well father, her octogenarian downstairs neighbor—bring new meaning to the phrase "it takes a village."
