As I Was, Not As I Am

Elephant Room's first virtual production. Written by Alice Hakvaag, directed by Julianne Schaub and featuring Caren Bermudez, Lorenza Bernasconi, Boris Dansberry and Kimie Muroya. This piece explores the importance of having access to affordable healthcare and celebrates the impact a passionate support system can have. Presented by Philadelphia artists who are hoping to give back to the city, the artistic community they call home.

Laurel is sick. Her roommates want her to get better. How do you help someone who can't afford health insurance? Does it involve setting a car on fire? As I Was, Not As I Am is mainly about roommates, headaches, clubbing, upstairs neighbors, arson, and washing machines; but it's also about love: the kind that would make you do anything for each other.

Proceeds from this production will be donated to Theatre Philadelphia’s Emergency Relief Fund to assist artists during the COVID-19 pandemic
