In the Elyria play, two women make a major, life-changing deal that will link their futures forever. Twenty years later, in Elyria, Ohio, the two reunite for the first time since then, after spending all that time oceans and continents apart. They are finally forced to reckon with both their past and their shared future.

Purohit makes her Off-Broadway debut with Elyria in New York, and she joins with return Atlantic Theater Company director Awoye Timpo. Timpo was last represented off Broadway with Theatre for a New Audience's production of Alice Childress's Wedding Band, and her last Atlantic directing credit was The Homecoming Queen by Ngozi Anyanwu.
