The Beatles may have been on to something when they sang “All you need is love.” Take Emma and Ulysses, a couple that meet again in a Colorado trailer park after being divorced for 20 years. The duo, whose love has never truly faded, reminisce about their past and speculate over what the future holds, particularly with the decline of Ulysses’ health. That’s the basis of Annapurna, a two-character play written by Sharr White and directed by David Mandel. Married couple Sharon Graci and Rodney Lee Rogers, co-founders of PURE, play the lovers, who despite all their years apart are able to let the past be the past, pick right up where they left off, and show that love is what really matters. Graci’s favorite aspect of Annapurna is its simplicity. She says it’s about the “big love — not those sparks when you first meet or those immediate flashes in the pan after the first, second, third dates, but about two people whose hearts truly belong to each other.”­
