The Elephant in the Room Theater Outing and Happy Hour

July 15, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$5 – $15

Join us in watching Priyanka Shetty’s play The Elephant in the Room, then join her for a happy hour to discuss her work!

“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 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.

Priyanka Shetty is a 2019 MFA graduate from UVA’s Department of Drama. Join us to catch her show prior to its month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and its first international tour! After the show (1 hour run time), we’ll gather for a happy hour and talk with Priyanka (location TBA).

Virginia Club members may purchase a maximum of two tickets at the member rate. Not a member yet? Join today!

This event is #open to all alumni, parents, and friends.
