MISERY

The stuff of nightmares, Misery is a fantastic adaptation of the best selling thriller novel by Stephen King, which was a critically acclaimed hit in London and in Dubai. Paul Sheldon, award winning novelist awakens after a car crash in the winter mountains to find he is the 'guest' of his number one fan - Annie Wilkes. Nursing him back to health, Annie's shady past and bouts of disturbing violence become more and more vivid for Paul as he struggles to free himself from a living hell. The production was nominated for Best Theatrical Show in the Timeout Nightlife Awards.
