Audition Notice: Misery

Rosewater Theatre is holding auditions for Misery. Adapted to stage by Simon Moore, based on a Stephen King novel.

The Plot: This stunning adaptation of the classic thriller is a tour de force for actors. Popular romance novelist Paul Sheldon retires each winter to Colorado to write another work featuring heroine Misery Chastain. Driving while inebriated, he loses control of his car. He regains consciousness in a filthy, dilapidated farmhouse that is cut off from the outside world by a blizzard. Annie, the schizophrenic occupant, is his number one fan and she insists she will nurse him. His legs are crushed and he is virtually a prisoner dependent on her for pain relief. She discovers that his new book is not about Misery and she forces him to destroy it and write another. Thus begins Paul’s descent into a living hell of pain, humiliation and degradation. Like Scheherazade, he must write a new chapter every day to stay alive.
