“One-Woman Wonder” Priyanka Shetty’s The Elephant in the Room is a witty, dark comedy about just your typical Indian metalhead and software-engineer-turned-actor who must navigate life as an immigrant in post-Trump America. When Priyanka makes the bold move to defy her family by quitting her IT job and moving to the U.S. to pursue an acting career, things don’t quite turn out how she imagined. Gear up for a funny, tumultuous ride through immiscible cultures, unforgettable love, irreparable loss, and the desperation of not belonging anywhere. Unapologetically Indian, and irreverently American, the play follows Priyanka's real-life journey as she transitions from her deeply embedded roots in India, to finding context and common ground in America.
