October 12-November 5, 2017

by William Goldman based on the novel by Stephen King

In this faithful adaptation of a King classic, romance novelist Paul Sheldon is rescued from a car accident by his “Number One Fan,” Annie Wilkes, and wakes up captive in her secluded home. While Paul is convalescing, Annie reads the manuscript to his newest novel and one plot twist leads to another, as Annie has Paul writing as if his life depends on it. And it does. A MAINE PREMIERE!
