Suranne Jones finds heartache in Frozen at Theatre Royal Haymarket

Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster, Scott & Bailey) and Jason Watkins (Line of Duty, Taboo, W1A) will star in a West End production of Frozen, Bryony Lavery’s award-winning play.

This psychological thriller, about a mother whose child goes missing, is directed by Jonathan Munby and will play a 12-week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from February.

One sunny evening a young girl walks to visit her grandma but she never arrives.

A play about retribution, remorse and redemption, Frozen explores the interwoven lives of three strangers as they try to make sense of the unimaginable.

Suranne Jones is about to reprise her BAFTA Award-winning title role in the second series of BBC One’s hugely successful drama Doctor Foster.

She recently completed filming for Save Me opposite Lennie James and Stephen Graham for Sky Atlantic.

Her theatre credits include Top Girls at Chichester Festival Theatre and in the West End, A Few Good Men at Theatre Royal Haymarket with Rob Lowe, for which she received the Theatregoers’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress, Blithe Spirit and Terms of Endearment.

Jason Watkins won Best Actor at the 2015 BAFTA Television Awards for his performance in the title role in acclaimed drama The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies.

He has also appeared in the Sky 1 comedy series, Trollied, as well as the popular BBC comedy W1A. Airing this September, Jason will be in the BBC One sitcom Hold The Sunset.

He has appeared in over 70 plays and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in A Servant To Two Masters for the RSC/Young Vic production in the West End.

Recent theatre includes Sam Shepard’s The Late Henry Moss at the Almeida Theatre and A Farewell to the Theatre at the Hampstead Theatre.

Bryony Lavery’s play, Frozen, commissioned by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, won the TMA Best Play Award, the Eileen Anderson Central Television Award and was then produced on Broadway where it was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Frozen will run at Theatre Royal Haymarket from February 9 – May 5, 2018.
