News   Chicago Misery Loves Company; King Adaptation Moves to Bailiwick
 
A stage version of Stephen King's novel, "Misery," about a writer and his obsessed No. 1 fan, moved to Bailiwick Arts Center in Chicago Jan. 2 following a successful run at Heartland Studio Theatre.

The non-Equity staging was recommended by the Jeff Awards committee, as well as area critics, and became a Heartland hit in late fall 2003. David Zak, artistic director of Bailiwick Repertory Theatre, staged the adaptation by Simon Moore and invited the show to his venue's loft space for a winter run to Feb. 1 on a Friday-Sunday schedule. The two-character plays features Kate Harris as Annie Wilkes and Mark A. Steel as Paul Sheldon.

Misery opened at Heartland Studio Theatre, produced by Pyewacket, in association with Scott Dray, LLC, on Oct. 19, 2003. Moore's adaptation has played internationally, including a London staging featuring Sharon Gless.
