Hampstead Theatre will present the U.K. premiere of Cost of Living, which earned playwright Martyna Majok the Pulitzer Prize for Drama earlier this year, as part of its 2019 programming. Edward Hall will helm the London production. Performances will run January 24, 2019, through March 2.

The drama follows the lives of four people: Eddie, an unemployed truck driver; Ani, his ex-wife who's left quadriplegic after a tragic accident; John, who has cerebral palsy; and Jess, his new caregiver.

Two world premieres will follow, beginning with Hannah Patterson’s Eden, a modern-day David and Goliath drama. Matthew Xia will direct the production, running February 7 through March 16. Rounding out the newly announced stagings is Kellie Smith’s Wilderness, directed by Anna Ledwich. Running March 21 through April 27, the play follows a separated couple fighting to maintain amicable relations for the sake of their son.
