In Rehearsal: Misery by Stephen King

Misery opens at Civic Theatre on Tuesday, 9th October and runs for 5 nights. This show has received a great response from audiences and is sure to be a great night out…

Novelist Paul Sheldon has plans to make the difficult transition from writing historical romances featuring heroine Misery Chastain to publishing literary fiction, however he gets more than his imagination could ever conjure when he crosses paths with his biggest fan Annie Wilkes after a car wreck leaves him in her care. The former nurse takes care of him in her remote house, but becomes irate when she discovers that the author has killed Misery off in his latest book. Annie keeps Sheldon prisoner while forcing him to write a book that brings Misery back to life. Joe Meagher and Denise Quinn star in this classic Stephen King psychological horror, directed by John Grubb and produced by Suirfire Productions.

Contains some strong language and scenes of a violent nature.

About Civic Theatre

History The Civic Theatre, opened in March 1999, a project of South Dublin County Council and also grant aided by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands.

Since opening we have developed relationships with most Irish theatre companies and most opera, contemporary dance, ballet and children's theatre companies, developing healthy audiences for these. We are particularly proud of our co-productions – to date we've produced; or co-produced 22 plays, involving new Irish writing. We have hosted wonderful international productions, fantastic local work, and we have had some terrific nights of music on stage at the Civic.
