ANNAPURNA

NORTH RALEIGH ARTS & CREATIVE THEATRE, RALEIGH

FRIDAY, AUG. 21–SUNDAY, SEPT. 6

To all you romantics among the Triangle's returning students, dreaming of long-term literary relationships, consider the following names: T.S. and Vivienne Eliot. Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Leonard and Virginia Woolf. Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes and Assia Wevill. To this list of literary marriages from hell, playwright Sharr White adds the fractious (if fictive) Ulysses and Emma. In White's rewarding 2013 dark comedy, Annapurna, Ulysses is a once-celebrated poet and professor who has gone almost feral, spending his last days in squalor, working on a rumored magnum opus in a ratty trailer outside of Paonia, Colorado. Some 20 years after Emma left him and took their 5-year-old son with her, she returns without warning. Why? There's something very new—and very old—for them to talk about. Dana Marks directs David Henderson and Susannah Hough in this regional premiere. 8 p.m. Fri.–Sat.;

3 p.m. Sun., $10–$17, 7713-51 Lead Mine Road, Raleigh, 919-866-0228,
