    In the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge on the Lower East Side, a struggling family prepares to ride out the next big storm.

    ‘Pike St.,’ Where One Woman Speaks for All

    Charles Isherwood

    November 17, 2015: Evelyn, the principal character in Nilaja Sun’s terrific new solo show, “Pike St.,” had her hands full even before news came of the hurricane bearing down on New York. Her 15-year-old daughter, Candi, is severely disabled and needs constant care. Four years ago, Candi had an aneurysm — or some similar catastrophic brain malfunction — and now she can barely speak and cannot feed herself. She also requires a respirator. It’s that respirator — and a dialysis machine — that’s jangling in Evelyn’s mind when we first meet her, on a phone call with Con Edison, trying to find out whether her building, on the Lower East Side street that gives the play its title, is likely to lose power. Evelyn desperately needs a generator in case it does. Moving with Candi into a shelter, as they did the last time a big storm hit, was traumatic for everyone.
