News   No Child Author Nilaja Sun Grapples With Tenement Life in New Pike St.
 
Following her acclaimed 2011 solo show No Child, Nilaja Sun returns Off-Broadway with the world premiere of Pike St., a new monologue play written and performed by the Obie winner.

Pike St. is presented by Epic Theatre Ensemble and helmed by executive director Ron Russell. Performances begin Nov. 10 at the Abron Arts Center, with an official opening night scheduled for Nov. 15.

Sun's newest work tells the story of Evelyn, whose teenage daughter Candace is unable to move or breathe on her own after a mysterious aneurysm. Stuck in a crumbling tenement, the struggling family prepares to weather the next big storm.

"Sun uses her trademark humor, political incisiveness, and virtuosity to bring to life the entirety of the Lower East Side, from decorated Puerto Rican war veteran Manny, to octogenarian downstairs neighbor Mrs. Applebaum, to Candace herself," state press notes.

Sun is a playwright and performer whose show No Child garnered critical acclaim and toured the country following its Off-Broadway debut. Her film and TV credits include "Louie," "30 Rock" and "Law & Order: SVU."
