The Weekend Theater presents Misery by William Goldman
based on the novel by Stephen King
directed by Amie White
MISERY follows successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon, who is rescued from a car crash by his “Number One Fan,” Annie Wilkes, and wakes up captive in her secluded home. While Paul is convalescing, Annie reads the manuscript to his newest novel and becomes enraged when she discovers the author has killed off her favorite character, Misery Chastain. Annie forces Paul to write a new “Misery” novel, and he quickly realizes Annie has no intention of letting him go anywhere. The irate Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it, and it does.
Misery runs October 21 through November 6, with showtimes at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday nights, and 2:30pm on Sundays. Get your tickets soon at Central Arkansas Tickets.com!
