What happens when two people can’t fully let go of each other despite years of destructive patterns followed by a 20-year hiatus? That’s one of the many questions tackled in Sharr White’s dark comedy Annapurna. In it, ex-couple Ulysses and Emma grapple with their tumultuous history when Emma, a well-to-do editor, travels to a remote Colorado trailer park to be at the side of Ulysses, a poet struggling with his physical and mental health.
What follows is, in the words of San Francisco Chronicle, “a comic and gripping duet…the closer [the characters] get to understanding what drove them apart, the more engrossed we become in watching them draw together.” Huffington Post agrees, declaring, “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.”
