I am your number one fan. I love you. Now lie still.

Misery by Simon Moore, adapted from Stephen King’s novel Misery is a play about best selling romantic fiction novelist Paul Sheldon who retires each winter to the snow-covered hills of Colorado to write another work featuring his beautiful heroine Misery Chastain. Driving whilst inebriated, he encounters severe weather and his car goes off the road.  Instead of awakening in hospital, when he regains consciousness,  he finds himself in a filthy, dilapidated farmhouse, isolated from the outside world by a blizzard and occupied by Annie, his “Number One Fan”.    She insists that she will nurse him, refusing to tell anyone of his whereabouts. His crushed legs mean that  he is virtually a prisoner –  dependent on Annie for pain relief.  When she discovers his novel does not feature Misery, she forces him to destroy the manuscript and write another.  Thus begins Paul’s descent into living hell.
