Adapted by two-time Oscar winner William Goldman (who penned the film adaptation ofMisery) and directed by Will Frears, the play’s developmental engagement will play 11 performances only from November 24 through December 8.

Misery will feature set design by David Korins, costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by David Weiner, sound design by Darron West, special effects by Gregory Meeh, fight direction by Rick Sordelet and original music by Michael Freidman.

Misery to Take the Stage in Dubai

IMAGE COURTESY OF LONDON AND DUBAI-BASED POPULAR PRODUCTIONS

From The National:

Misery, one of my favorite and most popular King books, will be adapted for the stage by a British company called "Popular Productions."  The show will run in Dubai at the First Group Theater at Madinat Jumeirah from February 1 to 11, for 16 performances.

"Thrillers are popular and Stephen King is a master of such genres," said Payton. "He's great at creating characters far removed from reality but realistic at the same time. It's a clever adaptation that stays true to the book with an exciting back-and-forth between the main characters and sudden twists. Here's a guy trapped by his 'number one fan', and we explore reasons why."

This adaptation by Simon Moore features Yvonne O'Grady playing Wilkes and Darren Day as Sheldon.

"Wilkes is psychologically disturbed. What's interesting is the audience gets a glimpse of her past for an idea as to why she goes through these moods," said O'Grady. "She is isolated, lonely and judgemental and we see a string of events in her life that she may have been involved with."

The first performance begins at 8pm on February 1, and tickets are Dh140 ($38) each. All other evening shows are Dh160 ($43) For matinées (2pm) tickets are Dh140 each. For more information, visit www.madinattheatre.com or www.popularproductions.com.
