About The Production:
Written and performed by Nilaja Sun
Directed by Ron Russell
Pike St. sees Nilaja Sun return to Australia in her first solo-show since the success of her sold-out Melbourne Festival hit and OBIE-award-winning, No Child.
In the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge, a struggling family prepares to ride out the next big storm. Unable to move her teenage daughter Candace – who cannot move or breathe on her own – out of their crumbling tenement, Evelyn plans for more than just survival: She fights for healing and redemption. But this is Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and in Pike Street hope might be just down the hall. Featuring her trademark humour, political incisiveness, and virtuosity, Sun brings to life the entirety of the Lower East Side; from decorated Puerto Rican war veteran Manny, to octogenarian downstairs neighbour Mrs. Applebaum, to Candace herself.
