Show Description: 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.
All roles are available.
ANNIE WILKES - middle aged
Former nurse, a seemingly wholesome, kind hearted woman who is Paul's "Number One Fan". But soon it becomes clear she is not as harmless or mentally stable as it would first seem. She is constantly jumping between kind and caring to ruthlessly vicious and this role requires an energetic and obsessive performance. Intense, mercurial, riveting, charming, and frightening.
PAUL SHELDON - middle aged
Author of a series of best selling romance novels who becomes totally immobile and in great pain after a car crash. He is utterly dependent on Annie. The hero of the story, Paul is motivated by survival. He is intelligent and charming, but physically incapacitated and somewhat helpless.
BUSTER- male...any age
Local sheriff, friendly, a guy's guy
