One Ticket Please

A 78-year-old Indian woman in New York is the world’s most passionate theatergoer. Nicki Cochrane been going to at least one play every day for more than 25 years. Always bringing her large bags, Nicki is ready to fight for a free seat at any show that’s worth her time. The elderly, culture-loving hustler has developed an array of ingenious means by which she acquires free tickets to most New York theatres. When small talk with the box office managers doesn’t get her a free ticket, Nicki stands outside the theatre entrance, holding a sign which says “One Ticket Please“ hoping that a stranger will have an extra ticket to spare. Disliked by theatre staff for her behavior, Nicki prides herself with a staunch dedication to the art. But at what point does dedication turn into addiction? As Nicki rushes around Manhattan from one theatre to the next, we discover her personality and the choices she has made in order to make a life at the theatre possible.
