The Bryony Lavery play Frozen is to be revived in London next February when it will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Set in England, Frozen is about the search of a 10-year-old girl Rhona, who goes missing, and follows her mother, and kidnapper, in the year that follows her disappearance. It premiered at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 1998 and ran at the Cottesloe Theatre at the National in 2002, and on Broadway in 2004.
Starring Doctor Foster actress Suranne Jones, the Bryony Lavery play Frozen will be revived at Theatre Royal Haymarket for a limited 12-week run from February 2018.
Frozen tells the story of the search for missing 10-year-old girl Rhona, and follows her mother (played by Jones) and kidnapper, who will be played by Jason Watkins.
The play premiered at the Birmingha Repetory Theatre in 1998, and was revived at the National Theatre’s Cottesloe Theatre in 2002, and also received a run on Broadway in 2004, when it was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.
