The Elephant in the Room
Written & Performed by Priyanka Shetty
Priyanka Shetty - Philadelphia, PA
V.3 - Théâtre Cercle Molière 
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 arriving in Trump's America. When Priyanka makes the bold move to defy her family by quitting her IT job and moving to the US to pursue an acting career, things don't quite turn out how she imagined.

The Elephant in the Room

Priyanka Shetty—Théâtre Cercle Molière

Priyanka takes us on her journey fighting against the norms of what she is expected to be doing and what she wants to do. The family and cultural pressures of India are shown as well as the story of how she was inspired to make the switch to a new career and ultimately move to the United States. She then delves into the cultural differences of life in America and how it was a lot more difficult than she expected.

A very poignant and professional performance that really captured the attention of the audience.
