Annapurna Poster


Closed June 1, 2014

Some of the many ways people can destroy their own happiness are on full, tragic display in Sharr White's imaginative play "Annapurna."

Why See Annapurna?

Real-life couple Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman (also from the hit TV series Parks and Recreation) star in this moving play about about love and loss. When cowboy-poet Ulysses (Offerman) becomes terminally ill, his estranged wife Emma (Mullally) tracks him down for a final reckoning. Their reunion, some twenty years after she initially walked out on their marriage, brings with it charged emotions and rekindles the bond which united them all those years ago.

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.

The production moves to Off-Broadway for its New York premiere after a sold-out run in Los Angeles, taking with it the same cast and creative team. It was written by Sharr White (The Snow Geese) and is directed once again by Bart DeLorenzo
