Description

Unapologetically Indian. The Elephant in the Room is a funny, tumultuous ride through immiscible cultures, love and loss, issues of race and the desperation of not belonging anywhere. The play navigates Priyanka's real-life journey as she transitions from her deeply embedded roots in India, to finding context and common ground in America. Standing room only at The Kennedy Center. 2019 BroadwayWorld US Award winner for Best Play, Best Lead Actress and Best Director. 'Well-written show, nicely calibrated humour... she's a performer to watch' (MDTheatreGuide.com). 'Amusing, relatable... incisive' (TVJerry.com). www.priyankashetty.com.
