Writer's Blocks

Thanks to Stephen King (with subsequent onscreen, if less graphic, help from Kathy Bates and James Caan), everyone ignorant to the ways of maiming learned what hobbling was all about. Neat, huh?! Grapevine's Runway Theatre, 215 N. Dooley St., is staging a production of the classic psychological tale about an author at the mercy of his "No. 1 fan," and the major question we've got is...How the hell are they going to tackle the hobbling? Do they use a shadow behind a sheet? Did they go with a foam mallet? Do they attempt the book version, spray fake blood and give him a fake nub? It's anyone's guess. Runway will provide the answer this last weekend of Misery. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10. Call 817-488-4842 or visit runwaytheatre.com.
Fri., Nov. 3, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 4, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 5, 3 p.m.
