Annapurna presented by Theatre22
written by Sharr White
directed by Julie Beckman
Off the grid and barley hanging on, Ulysses unexpectedly finds his wife, Emma, at his trailer door. It's been 20 years since their marriage was torn apart by a horrific event that Ulysses can't remember and Emma can't forget. In the spirit of some of the greatest American dramas, Annapurna is built upon the hopefulness of reconciliation. Passionate, funny, fierce it is the impossibility of scaling a mountain of strife that makes the climb so seductive.

Described as a "visceral, profound and sometimes funny meditation on love and loss", Annapurna is a moving and emotional play created using the most refined form of theatre; two people in a room.
"Sharr White's ANNAPURNA is a comic and gripping duetThe closer [;;;;the characters];;;; get to understanding what drove them apart, the more engrossed we become in watching them draw together." San Francisco Chronicle.
"What if you had experienced the defining moment of your lifebut couldn't remember it? Sharr White's remarkable two-person play ANNAPURNAdeals with just that dilemma, as well as other imponderables such as the vagaries of love and the philosophical clarity of impending death." LA Times.
"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 poetry is endearing and quite lovely, and his dialogue is sharp, funny and consistently very honest"BroadwayWorld.com.
