True life becomes stranger than fiction when an acclaimed romance novelist Paul Sheldon wakes up incapacitated in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes - his “number one fan”- after she rescues him from a wintery car crash. While Paul is on the mend, Annie insists she must proof read Paul’s latest book but becomes blind with rage when it is revealed Mr. Sheldon has killed off Annie’s favorite character, Misery Chastain. As Annie forces the injured Paul to write a new Misery novel, he realizes the unhinged Annie has no intention of letting him leave, prompting a game of cat-and-mouse as he tries to outsmart her and plan his escape. Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, this spine-tingling stage adaptation will grip you until the very end. Recommended for mature audiences.
