Frozen to be performed at Octagon Theatre

The Bolton News: Jean St Clair, Deepa Shastri  and Sophie Stone in Frozen Jean St Clair, Deepa Shastri and Sophie Stone in Frozen

A PLAY with a cast of deaf and hearing actors will be performed in Bolton.

Frozen, an award-winning play originally developed at the National Theatre Studio, will be at the Octagon Theatre tonight and tomorrow for its first major production of the play in 10 years.

One evening, 10-year-old Rhona goes missing on the way to her grandmother’s house causing her mother, Nancy, to retreat into a state of frozen hope.

Agnetha, an American criminal psychologist, comes to England to research her thesis, Serial Killing: A Forgivable Act?, and then there is Ralph — a loner with a bit of previous, who is looking for some distraction.

Drawn together, the lives of these three characters slowly intersect as they embark upon a long dark journey, through remorse and forgiveness, finally ascending into the light.

Each character is performed by two actors in the play, being presented by theatre company fingersmiths, set up by Jean St Clair and Jeni Draper who are known for bringing their visual and physical theatre style to the stage.

Frozen, by Bryony Lavery, will be at the Octagon Theatre tonight at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 1.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 or £8 concessions.

Agreed - why not publish it earlier so we could buy tickets to see it! As it is I don't finish work until about 630 tonight and have no chance of seeing it tomorrow evening either, which is a shame as it does sound good!
