About Cost of Living

When Ani is reunited with her estranged husband Eddie after a devastating accident, their relationship shifts from divorcing to caregiving. John is an affluent PhD candidate with cerebral palsy, and has no qualms about making his support worker – fellow graduate student and bartender-by-night Jess – uncomfortable about her reasons for choosing the job.

Through the lives of four mismatched souls struggling for connection, Majok’s award-winning script lays bare the exquisite tenderness of being human.

With an ensemble cast including Oli Pizzey Stratford (Neighbours) and Mabel Li (Safe Home), Cost of Living taps into the essence of human connection and our universal need to care for others and ourselves.
