Written by William Goldman

Directed by Greg Shawcross

28th June - 13th July

Famed writer Paul Sheldon is ready to leave his popular series of romance novels featuring Misery Chastain behind in pursuit of work that offers more critical recognition. That is until he is involved in a horrific car accident during a snowstorm in Colorado. Upon regaining consciousness he finds himself in a remote cabin being nursed back to health by his self-proclaimed number one fan, Annie Wilkes.


Based on the bestseller by Stephen King (The Stand, Rita Hayworth And Shawshank Redemption) and adapted for the stage by Academy Award winner William Goldman (All The President’s Men, The Princess Bride), ‘Misery’ takes its audience on a harrowing journey through the depths of a writer’s worst nightmare.
