“Frozen” :: theatrical performance by The Actor’s Group

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?” Ralph is a serial killer looking for “distraction”.  Drawn together by horrific circumstances, these three embark on a long, dark journey which finally curves upward into the light. 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.

Directed by Tom Ryersbach, featuring Renee Quarterman, Jeff Dohrmann, and Susan Guinter. Showtimes: March 17, 18, 19 at 7:30pm and Sunday March 20 at 2pm. Tickets $10, Students $5
