by William Goldman, based on the novel by Stephen King

Successful romance novelist Paul Sheldon 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.  Paul quickly realizes the irate Annie has no intention of letting him go anywhere as she has him writing a new novel as if his life depends on it, and it does.

Featuring COM Theatre faculty member Ashley Love in the lead role!
