Dorset Theatre Festival
June 23-July 8
by William Goldman
Based on the novel by Stephen King
Directed by Jackson Gay
After being rescued from a wintery car crash, acclaimed romance novelist Paul Sheldon finds himself incapacitated in the secluded home of Annie Wilkes, his “Number One Fan.” Events take a nightmarish turn and the injured Paul realizes the unhinged Annie has no intention of letting him leave. This spine-tingling stage adaptation traps you in the room with Paul, who must outsmart Annie if he wants to escape the tense game of cat-and-mouse that will grip you until the very end.
ADVISORY: This Stephen King thriller features a psychopathic bibliophile whose weapons of choice include prescription drugs, physical violence and sledgehammers, and a captive victim who, quite understandably, uses very strong adult language.
