Product Description

Twenty years ago, Emma walked out on her husband, cowboy-poet Ulysses, in the middle of the night. Now hearing he’s in dire straits, she tracks him down in the wilds of Colorado to a filthy trailer, where he’s hooked to an oxygen tank and cooking sausage in the buff. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the worst and best of their former bond.

Annapurna received its world premiere at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco, its Los Angeles premiere at the Odyssey Theatre in 2013 and its NYC off-Broadway premiere as part the New Group’s 2013-14 season, the latter two productions starring real-life couple Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman. It was a 2012 finalist for the Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award.

Praise for Annapurna:

"...at the heart of each character, is a lyricism  that simply can't be suffocated. Sharr White has created two fine and ferociously damaged people caught in the emotional whirlpool of not being able to live with or without each other." —Huffington Post

“[White’s characters] “navigate their treacherous reunion with wary humor, anger and intimations of what once drew them together and drove them apart.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Sharr White’s plays have been developed or produced at Manhattan Theatre Club, MCC Theatre, The Magic Theatre, Actors Theatre of Louisville, and many more. His plays include The Other Place, which starred Laurie Metcalf (Lucille Lortel and Obie awards, Tony nomination) in both the off-Broadway and Broadway productions, and The Snow Geese, with Mary-Louise Parker.
