Big Bear Performing Arts Center

A riveting play by William Goldman based on the novel by Stephen King, heralded by critics for its ability to bring a focused intensity and closeness uniquely achievable on stage.  It is a gripping psychological thriller that has been described as “highly entertaining and very funny despite the macabre atmosphere."

Starring: Amy Biedel (Mamma Mia, The Midnight Club) as Annie, Steve Cassling (Nightmare on Elm Street, The Bold and the Beautiful) as Paul, and Sean Scofield (Hollywood Fringe Festival - Titus Sharkdronicus) as Buster.

ADVISORY: This Stephen King thriller features a psychopathic bibliophile whose weapons of choice include prescription drugs, physical violence and sledgehammers, and a captive victim who, quite understandably, uses very strong adult language.
