About the project and the company
The University of Washington School of Drama will present Frozen: A Play by Bryony Lavery in the coming quarter, directed by 2nd Year MFA in Directing Candidate Andrew Coopman as part of the NEW CabLab series. The CabLab is an opportunity for students (graduate and undergraduate) to present semi-produced work honing the skills and practices learned in the classroom for the community. It’s a way for the community to get an inside look at what the directors, actors, and designers are learning in the School of Drama.

Synopsis for Frozen: A Play: “One evening, ten-year-old Rhona goes missing. Her mother, Nancy, retreats into a state of frozen hope. Agnetha, an academic, comes to England to research a thesis titled “Serial Killings: A Forgiveable Act?” Then there’s Ralph, a loner with a bit of a record who’s looking for some distraction … Drawn together by horrific circumstances, these three embark upon a long, dark journey that finally curves upward into the light in this ‘big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness, and bearing the unbearable’ (The Guardian).”
