Suranne Jones Cast in Frozen at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Monday, 4th Sep 2017  

It has been four years since we last saw Suranne Jones on a London stage, back when she played the role of Sandra in the Arts Theatre’s Beautiful Thing in 2013, but 2018 will see her return to the capital as she steps onto the stage of the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

This is because she will be taking on the lead role in the revival of Bryony Lavery’s Frozen (not to be confused with the Disney film – this is a 90s play involving the kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl). She will be directed by Jonathan Munby in the production, whilst Jason Watkins appears alongside her.

Bryony Lavery first presented her play back in the late 1990s and audiences were faced with a powerful story told from the perspective of three characters. One of them is a murderer, Ralph, the other, Nancy, is the mother of the kidnapped Rhona, and the other is Agnetha, a psychiatrist from across the Pond. During the course of the play, which is set in the aftermath of Rhona’s kidnapping, we learn how things transpired from each vantage point.

When the show was first seen on these shores it received positive reviews and there will be plenty of theatregoers eager to witness it once again. But with Suranne Jones returning to the stage as well it will be a must-see show of 2018 as she has enjoyed a successful stage and screen career beyond the mentioned Beautiful Thing at the Arts Theatre. Her credits also include Orlando at the Manchester Royal Exchange, Top Girls at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester, Blithe Spirit at the Manchester Royal Exchange and A Few Good Men at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

So it’s safe to say she will provide a familiar face when the show opens in February, especially when these credits are coupled with her appearances in shows like Coronation Street, Doctor Who and Doctor Foster, amongst others.

Frozen will provide audiences with their latest opportunity to witness Suranne Jones on the stage when it runs at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Friday 9th February 2018.
