Coming Soon: “Frozen”

September 28, 2014


Event: “Frozen” presented by Pangdemonium
Venue: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Run: 23rd Oct – 9th Nov 2014

In keeping with their 2014 theme of “misfits and outsiders”, Pangdemonium’s third production of the year (after “Fat Pig” and “The Rise & Fall of Little Voice”) sees them staging the play “Frozen”, winner of the prestigious Barclay Award for Best New Play, and nominated for 4 Tony Awards, including Best Play.

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.

When Artistic Directors Tracie and Adrian Pang first read the play, they were struck at the play’s emotional, intellectual and visceral impact, which they found very moving and powerful.

“The questions the play raises about retribution, redemption, compassion and forgiveness – they affect us all in our daily lives. The play also deals with subjects who really resonate with us: the influence we have as parents on the kind of adults our children grow into; and also society’s responsibility to protect every child from harm. It really is a story that needs to be told.”

Play starts 23rd October so get your tickets soon!
