THE ELEPHANT IN EVERY ROOM I ENTER is a strikingly intimate solo piece about Gardiner Comfort's experience as an actor living with Tourette Syndrome.

Created with his frequent collaborator Kel Haney - You're Not Tough (HERE Arts Center; Dixon Place), the play explores the week Gardiner spent at the Tourette Association of America National Conference in Washington, DC. Surrounded by hundreds of other people with Tourette's: it was the first time he felt "normal."

Using an erratic and energetic performance style (a nod to Tourette's itself), along with groundbreaking video design (Caite Hevner & Lianne Arnold), this original show blends comedy, dance and a personal outlook on disability.
