by Deepa Purohit
directed by Awoye Timpo

Linda Gross Theater

February 10 – March 19, 2023

We are thrilled to welcome back Awoye Timpo (The Homecoming Queen) to direct Deepa Purohit’s Off-Broadway debut.

More Info

Navratri, 1982. Elyria, Ohio: Vasanta and Dhatta collide 20 years, 3 continents, and 2 oceans after making a deal of a lifetime, forcing them to face the knots of the past and the uncertainty of their inextricably linked future.

Elyria runs 2 hours and 20 minutes including one 10 minute intermission.


“A microcosmic tale of the Indian diaspora, Deepa Purohit’s new play centers on the tangled history of two women and the man in between them.
Bhavesh Patel’s Charu is perfect. Charu is comic and reckless, selfish and decent, myopic and real. It’s an exhilarating performance, a work of actorly alchemy.”

Laura Collins-Hughes, THE NEW YORK TIMEs


“A deliciously diverting new melodrama from playwright Deepa Purohit. Director Awoye Timpo extracts uniformly excellent performances from the cast. Unfolds like a Douglas Sirk movie by way of the Indian diaspora.”

Thom Geier, ThE WRAP


“Uniformly winning performances from the cast! Purohit has plenty to say about class and caste, about keeping secrets, about family and love. Well said & well-acted!”

Stuart Miller, Theater Pizzazz


“Awoye Timpo’s fluid production is NOT TO BE MISSED! Its ghosts will haunt you after the lights go down. Invigorated by bursts of dance theatre.”

Amelia Merrill, New York Theatre Guide


“Elyria tells the kind of story that we see too infrequently on New York stages. It invites the audience to feel a part of the proceedings.”

Pete Hempstead, TheaterMania


“A sweeping and ambitious work!”

Howard Miller, Talkin’ Broadway

Elyria is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
