About the Show/Event
Information for Cost of Living at Hampstead Theatre, Inner London (Play). John, a wealthy, brilliant, and successful PhD student with cerebral palsy, hires Jess, a recent graduate who has fallen on hard times, as his new carer. Across town, truck driver Eddie attempts to support and re-engage with his estranged wife, Ani, following a terrible accident that has left her quadriplegic. As four very different lives collide and entwine, roles are unapologetically flipped, reversed and exposed - who is actually caring for whom?
Performers Adrian Lester (Eddie), Emily Barber (Jess), Katy Sullivan (Ani), Jack Hunter (John).
