AVAILABLE ROLES ANNIE WILKES (female, middle-aged) - Former nurse, a seemingly wholesome, kindhearted woman who is Paul's "Number One Fan". But soon it becomes clear she is not as harmless or mentally stable as it would first seem. She is constantly jumping between kind and caring to ruthlessly vicious, and this role requires an energetic and obsessive performance. Intense, mercurial, riveting, charming, and frightening.
PAUL SHELDON (male, middle-aged) - Author of a series of best-selling romance novels who becomes totally immobile and in great pain after a car crash. He is utterly dependent on Annie. The hero of the story, Paul is motivated by survival. He is intelligent and charming, but physically incapacitated and somewhat helpless.
BUSTER (male, any age) - Local sheriff, friendly, a guy's guy
