Cost of Living had its UK premiere at the Hampstead Theatre last night, and the cast celebrated with guests afterwards at the north London venue.

Starring Adrian Lester, Katy Sullivan, Emily Barber and Jack Hunter, Martyna Majok's piece explores contemporary attitudes to disability, race, class and wealth.

Joe Penhall, Meera Syal and Sanjeev Bhaskar were among those in attendance at premiere of the play, which won the Pulitzer Prize when it first ran in 2016.


The UK production is directed by Hampstead Theatre's outgoing artistic director Edward Hall, and has design by Michael Pavelka, lighting by Matt Haskins, sound by Paul Groothuis, composition by Simon Slater, video by Ian William Galloway and casting by Susan Parriss.
