It’s Misery at Welwyn Garden City theatre
A STAGE adaptation of Stephen King classic Misery comes to the Hawthorne Theatre in Welwyn Garden City next week.
IT’S always nice to be loved. To know that someone thinks the world of you and that they will care for you if you’re ill, bolster your spirits if you’re down.
It’s a wonderful feeling – but push it just a little bit further and it becomes creepy. What if you’d never met this admirer? Never knew of their existence until fate throws them into your path? What if they were your ‘number one fan’, but you didn’t live up to their expectations?
Adapted from Stephen King’s award-winning novel, Misery is a taut, dark and twisting tale that enthrals the audience from the very beginning to the climactic and unexpected ending.
Even if you have read the book and seen the film, Blue Orange Theatre’s production, playing at the Hawthorne Theatre, in WGC, on Wednesday, November 14 will surprise you.
Popular romance novelist Paul Sheldon retires to Colorado to write the final work in a successful series featuring his heroine Misery Chastain.
Driving while inebriated, he loses control of his car, only regaining consciousness in a dilapidated farmhouse which is cut off from the outside world in a blizzard.
His legs crushed, he can only rely on the woman who saved him: Annie, his number one fan.
Thrilling and moving, intense and emotional, and featuring strong language and violent scenes, this production of Misery holds nothing back, taking the audience into the darker sides of fandom.
* Blue Orange Theatre present Misery at the Hawthorne Theatre, Welwyn Garden City on Wednesday, November 14 at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £16.50 and £13.50 concessions.
