Toronto’s theatre scene continues to offer us some great selections this month. My pick for this week is Seven Siblings Theatre‘s production of Bryony Lavery‘s play Frozen currently on-stage at the b current studio theatre.
Synopsis: One evening ten-year-old Rhona goes missing. Her mother, Nancy, retreats into a state of frozen hope. Agnetha, an American academic, comes to England to research a thesis: “Serial Killing—A Forgivable Act?” Then there’s Ralph, a loner who’s looking for some distraction. Angry, humane, and compassionate, Frozen is an extraordinary play that entwines the lives of a murderer, the mother of one of his victims and his psychologist to explore our capacity for forgiveness, remorse, and change, after an act that would seem to rule them out entirely.
Frozen stars Nancy McAlear as Nancy, Madryn McCabe as Agnetha, and Scott McCulloch as Ralph. Directed by Will King (Recall, Titus Andronicus, Rhinoceros) with a production team including Chin Palipane, Madryn McCabe, and Margaret Hild.
All performances will be held at the b current studio theatre, which is located in the Artscape Wychwood Barns. Please note, the theatre is located on the 2nd floor, and there are no late admissions for this performance.
Frozen continues until June 3, 2018. Tickets range from $15 – $20 and are available through Brown Paper Tickets here.
