About

SEPT. 01 - SEPT. 29, 2018
Directed by BLAKE ROBISON

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.

“An old-fashioned chiller … the gasps and the giggles are deliciously jumbled together.” — NJ.com
 

ADVISORY: Misery is suitable for adult audiences and teenagers 17 and older. This Stephen King thriller features a psychopathic bibliophile whose weapons of choice include prescription drugs, physical violence and sledgehammers, and a captive victim who, quite understandably, uses very strong adult language.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 2 hours and 7 minutes, including one intermission.
