So You’ve Never Heard of ‘Annapurna’

Next weekend (January 23rd to be exact), we’re holding auditions for the fifth show in out 2015-16 season, and this show is called Annapurna. Find yourself asking, “What is this show?” or saying, “I’ve never heard of it!”? You’re not alone.


Annapurna is a touching 2-person story about the love that breaks us, but also ultimately heals us. Before you audition, learn a little bit more about this new play by Sharr White.

Here’s how it’s billed on “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 in a grungy trailer, working on his magnum opus, hooked to an oxygen tank, and cooking in the buff. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the worst and best of their former bond.”
