This classic Stephen King story had many challenges. including the removal of the set designer, and removal and replacement of the projections designer - all within a week before performance week. In addition, the director had a family emergency the week of the show, and had to step a way for a while. The show ran smoothly, and was great, spooky, fun! Complete with a bloody death!

A trilling story of a novelist and his assistant, was an outstanding experience for Ben. This show was a very fun, high energy play equipped with a multitude of tech elements, fights, and weapons! Of course, it came with some problems, including the director's medical emergency, and the absent sound cues, but was a joy (and fright) to experience!
