True life becomes stranger than fiction when an acclaimed romance novelist wakes up in the home of his “Number One Fan.” Rescued from a wintery car crash, Paul Sheldon finds himself incapacitated in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes, a seemingly kind nurse. When events take a nightmarish turn, the injured Paul realizes the unhinged Annie has no intention of letting him leave. This spine-tingling stage adaptation traps you in the room with Paul as he must outsmart Annie if he hopes to escape. Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, the tense cat-and-mouse game will grip you until the very end.

The stage adaptation is by two-time Academy Award winner William Goldman, who penned the 1990 screen version of the 1987 novel. Misery is one of King’s best-known books in part because it became one of his most successful movies. Starring James Caan and Kathy Bates, it won a “Best Supporting Actress” Oscar for Bates.

Potential showgoers are reminded this production contains adult language and violence.
