In the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge on the Lower East Side, a struggling family prepares to ride out the next big storm.  Unable to move her teenaged daughter Candace, whose mysterious aneurysm has rendered her unable to move or breathe on her own, down five flights of stairs in their crumbling tenement, mother Evelyn plans for more than just survival: as the storm approaches, she fights for healing and redemption. 

PIKE ST. marks Sun's first solo show since her international hit, the OBIE-award winning NO CHILD..., and features her trademark humor, political incisiveness, and virtuosity as she brings 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.  It also marks her return home to the Abron Arts Center, where she took her first acting class, and began her extraordinary artistic journey out from the Loisaida.

There will be post-show discussions after the performances.  Check back with us for specific topics, speakers and dates.
