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 his latest book 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.

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.

Types: Full-Length Play

Genre: Drama

*** All Ages are Relative ***

ANNIE WILKES (Female Presenting, 40s – 60s – any Race) A nurse who comes to Paul’s rescue (seemingly), Annie seems to be a kind, tender woman who cares deeply for Paul, even if she does seem slightly off. As Paul grows to know her it becomes clearer that Annie is manipulative, cunning, and hides a deep set and terrifying malice behind her cheery simple façade.

PAUL SHELDON (Male Presenting, Late 30s – Early 60s – any race) A famed romance novelist tired of the series that has brought him the most acclaim. Returning from a retreat to finish his most recent work, he is involved in a terrible car crash that leaves him with broken legs and unable to care for himself. He’s thoughtful, if not a touch arrogant, and extremely crafty. He quickly realizes how dangerous his situation is and must use anything and everything at his disposal to survive.

BUSTER (Male Presenting, Late 30s – Late 60s, any race) The Sherriff of a nearby town searching for Paul. Very friendly with possible hopes of something more with Annie.

Annie Wilkes: Monica Reichl
Paul Sheldon: Michael Tennant
Buster: Kristopher James
