Written & Performed by Nilaja Sun

In the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge, a struggling family prepares to ride out a hurricane. Unable to move her teenaged daughter Candace—whose mysterious aneurysm has rendered her unable to move or breathe on her own—from their sixth-floor walkup, Evelyn plans for more than just survival: she fights for healing and redemption. With Pike St., Nilaja Sun uses her trademark humour and virtuosity to bring to life the entire Lower East Side, from decorated Puerto Rican war veteran Manny, to octogenarian neighbor Mrs. Applebaum, to Candace herself, trapped in her body yet remarkably full of vigour and hope.
