ANNAPURNA to Play Purple Rose Theatre, 9/18-12/20

The Purple Rose Theatre Company is thrilled to bring the bittersweet comedy, Annapurna by Sharr White to Michigan for the first production of their 24th Season.

What if you had experienced the defining moment of your life -- but couldn't remember it? Sharr White's heartfelt and remarkable play, Annapurna, deals with that dilemma and the unpredictable eccentricities of love. Named for the Himalayan Mountain, marriage can be just that kind of peak; we are compelled to make the climb, but not all of us survive the journey intact. Join us for this bittersweet comedy by one of America's most vibrant and lyrical new playwrights. Annapurna contains adult language and themes.
