The two-hander about an estranged husband and wife replaces the previously scheduled production of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's Hunter Gatherers, which has "been postponed until further notice," according to the theatre's website.
Eric Burgher will direct Annapurna, which begins performances June 6 for a run through July 20. The cast will feature Darrell W. Cox as Ulysses. Casting for the role of Emma will be announced soon.
Annapurna is receiving a high-profile Off-Broadway premiere starring Emmy winner Megan Mullally and her husband Nick Offerman. Performances begin April 13. White is the playwright of The Snow Geese and The Other Place.
Here's how the play is billed: "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 to find him living 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."
