Ten-year-old Rhona has gone missing. Her disappearance brings together three strangers, their lives interwoven by horrific circumstances: Rhona’s mother Nancy, left frozen with hope; Ralph, a serial killer; and Agnetha, an academic intent on discovering what drives people to commit such crimes.
First performed in 1998, Bryony Lavery’s Frozen asks challenging questions about grief, revenge, forgiveness and redemption.
