Following the remarkable success of No Child…, which ran for a year at Barrow Street Theatre in New York and was presented as part of Dublin Theatre Festival, OBIE Award-winning Nilaja Sun returns with her one-woman show, Pike St. fresh from critical acclaim in the U.S.
Set in a diverse neighbourhood in the shadow of Manhattan Bridge, Pike St. tells the story of a desperate mother unable to move her stricken daughter down five flights of stairs during an approaching hurricane. As she works to keep the electricity flowing into her daughter’s respirator, an entire community of colourful characters – a decorated war veteran, her ne’er-do-well father, and her octogenarian downstairs neighbour – offer their help, casting new light on the phrase ‘it takes a village.’
This production is funded by Dublin City Arts Office.
