One sunny morning, 10-year-old Rhona goes missing. Her mother Nancy (Karen Tan), retreats into a state of frozen hope for the next twenty years. Does “closure” mean forgiveness? Or revenge?
Agnetha (Janice Koh) is a pioneering psychiatrist with a controversial theory on serial killers. Does she really believe what she preaches, even as she fights her own demons?
And then there’s Ralph (Adrian Pang), a loner with a fractured history and a deadly obsession… Is he a monster? Or a misunderstood man-child?
Drawn together by horrific circumstances, these three individuals embark upon a tangled, twisted journey, uncovering one another’s skeletons and ghosts along the way, before finally finding the light. Frozen is a shocking, searing, and ultimately sensitive study of the fragile human psyche, and the meaning of retribution, survival, and hope.
Winner of the prestigious Barclay Award for ‘Best New Play’, and nominated for 4 Tony Awards, including ‘Best Play’, Frozen is a powerful, bold and haunting psychological thriller.
