Cost of Living concerns John, a wealthy, brilliant, and successful PhD. student with cerebral palsy, who hires Jess, a recent graduate who has fallen on hard times, as his new caregiver. Across town, truck driver Eddie attempts to support and re-engage with his estranged wife, Ani, following a terrible accident that has left her quadriplegic. As four very different lives collide and entwine, roles are unapologetically flipped, reversed and exposed—who is actually caring for whom?

Sullivan received a Theatre World Award as well as Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Lucille Lortel Award nominations for her performance.
