MISERY Begins Performances Tonight At The Barn Theatre

Based on the novel by Stephen King. running through September 11.

MISERY loves company! Join us for the stage version of Stephen King's novel starring Kim Zimmer and Eric Parker. Playing at the Barn Theatre September 8 through 11 - just one long weekend.

Adapted for the stage and screen by William Goldman, MISERY tells the story of novelist Paul Sheldon (Barn Favorite Eric Parker) as he transitions from writing romances featuring heroine Misery Chastain to publishing literary fiction. Annie Wilkes (Guest Artist Kim Zimmer), Sheldon's number one fan, rescues the author from the scene of a car accident. The former nurse takes care of him in her remote house and when events take a nightmarish turn, Sheldon soon realizes the unhinged Annie has no intention of letting him leave. Rounding out the cast is Charlie King as Buster. This spine-tingling stage adaptation traps you in the room with Paul as he must outsmart Annie if he hopes to escape. The tense cat-and-mouse game will grip you until the very end. Rated PG-13.


MISERY opened on Broadway in November 2015, ran for 102 performances, and featured Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf.

MISERY is directed by Patrick Hunter. Nettie Fischer is the Costume Designer with Set Design by Steven Lee Burright. Emily Boomer is the Properties Master. Lighting is designed by Eric Morris, with Jake Ragotzy as Sound Designer. Brett Burradell is the Technical Director.
