Can they come over?
A psychological thriller about a mother whose child goes missing; a play about retribution, remorse and redemption and the interwoven lives of three strangers as they try to make sense of the unimaginable.
Bryony Lavery’s Frozen was winner of the TMA Best New Play award and the Eileen Anderson Central Television Award for Best Play. Frozen premiered at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 1998. The play was revived at the National Theatre, London, in 2002 and at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, in February 2018.
‘Bryony Lavery’s big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.’ Guardian
Heart-rending tour de force... Frozen is truly an outstanding play.
Affecting and thoughtful... Lavery examines matters with candour and sympathy from a range of angles in what is surely her masterpiece as a playwright.
Lavery's play is both radical in form and progressive in content... The outstanding virtue of the play is that it shows that vindictive hatred leads nowhere and we need to comprehend, as King Lear says, "what cause in nature makes these hard hearts".
