According to The Guardian, Stephen King’s 1987 novel Misery is set to become a US stage play. The adaptation will open for a limited run at the Bucks County Playhouse, Pennsylvania, this November.
The production is set to follow the plot of the book about a deranged woman who helps writer Paul Sheldon recover from a car accident but then keeps him prisoner so he can write a book for her.
Will Fears has written the fresh take on this classic horror novel, which was also adapted to the big screen in 1990. Many will know Will Fears as the writer of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride, so can expect great things from the new and exciting play.
However, those who can’t make it to Pennsylvania to see the play this autumn should pick up a copy of the novel, as it’s as tense and gripping as it was when it was written 25 years ago.
