TWTP Presents Annapurna

Final Performances

Final Performances - Saturday 10/22 at 7:30 pm and Sunday 10/23 at 2:30 pm.

Plenty of seats remain. Come on down!

Our season opens October 7 with an official Artober event, another in a long string of regional premieres: Annapurna, by Sharr White. Twenty years ago, in the middle of the night, Emma walked out on her husband, the rough-hewn cowboy poet Ulysses. Now she shows up at his filthy trailer in the Colorado Rockies, to discover that he’s a mess: hooked up to an oxygen tank, wearing just an apron, and frying breakfast sausage. Their reunion, an alternately funny and touching mixture of old battles and enduring compassion, stirs up the worst and best elements of their former bond.

We're proud to bring back two of Nashville's most accomplished actors for our Tenth Anniversary Season opener:

TWTP's production of "Annapurna" stars Holly Butler and Alan LeeHolly Butler (Emma) joins us for her third appearance with TWTP. Her previous roles on our stage include Mother in The Disappearance of Janey Jones (2012) and Masha in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike (2014).

Alan Lee (Ulyssesreturns to Nashville from his Lafitte, Louisiana home base for his second role with TWTP. Alan appeared in the opening production of our first full season of shows at the Looby Theater,  2007's Defying Gravity.

"Smart, honest and terribly human." Holly Butler "walks a fine line between acerbic wit and genuine anguish" and Alan Lee is "the perfect 'zen cowboy poet'".
-- Amy Stumpfl, The Tennessean
These "broken characters [earn] the viewer’s empathy, never allowing sentiment to overpower the edginess of their precarious emotional situation."
-- Martin Brady, Nashville Scene

Dates: October 7 – 23, 2016
