BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Penobscot Theatre Company is in the midst of a show it holds dear to its heart… Misery. The play is based on the novel written by Stephen King - one of the Bangor company's biggest supporters.

Despite have a famous author just down the road, the company - in its 44 years - has never been able to do a Stephen King show. While he doesn't own the rights to the play, they're happy to honor his work through this high-energy -- slightly graphic - horror show.
