ABLE CAIN: San Jose Stage Company brings James M. Cain's 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' to life in a world premiere.

The Postman Always Rings Twice comes to life on stage as never seen before. James M. Cain’s 1934 novel has been given a film treatment multiple times: including in Tay Garnett’s 1946 box office success, and in the Jack Nicholson-starring 1981 movie. The Stage presents a brand new adaptation of this sadistic love affair, which follows Frank Chambers, a drifter who winds up lost and love with Cora, a waitress at a rural diner. After the pair fall for each other, they begin plotting to murder Cora’s husband—but things don’t go as planned. Runs through May 6. (SM)
