MISERY LOVES COMPANY


Do you like to be scared? Stephen King fans have a lot of thrills to look forward to in the Court Theatre’s production of Stephen King’s Misery, adapted from master of American horror’s 1987 novel by acclaimed novelist, screen and playwright William Goldman. As part of the Court’s Meridian Energy 2018/2019 season, Dan Bain directs Gavin Rutherford as a popular writer who gets into a car accident in rural Colorado, and Lara Macgregor as his biggest and terrifyingly obsessive fan. Expect tension and terror. Director Bain says, ‘We’ll be doing our best to honour the intent of the piece… Our aim is not to please, coddle or pander. Our goal is screams.’ Ooer!
