Cost of Living is a refreshingly bold play, it presents disability in a matter of fact way focusing on relationships while challenging inhibitions
Eddie (Adrian Lester) is looking after his soon to be ex-wife Ani (Katy Sullivan) who is quadriplegic after a terrible accident and Jess (Emily Barber) has just been employed to help PhD student John (Jack Hunter) who has cerebral palsy.
While Ani and John are totally reliant on their carers for physical assistance, Eddie and Jess are equally needy in their own way.
We are first introduced to Eddie who is in a bar, buying the barman drinks as penance when he gets gloomy about a recent bereavement.
Majok doesn't always give Eddie the words to explain his thoughts but it is all there in Lester's nuanced performance.
It is a gripping opening but the play stumbles a little as it moves into its middle section.
