Can a Victim’s Mother’s Tears Thaw a Killer’s Heart of Ice in “Frozen” at Raleigh Ensemble Players?

Can a mother’s tears thaw a killer’s heart of ice? British playwright Bryony Lavery’s provocative 1998 play, “Frozen,” asks that very question. Nancy (portrayed for Raleigh Ensemble Players by Staci Sabarsky) is the anguished British mother of a missing child, 10-year-old Rhona, whom she fears has fallen victim to Ralph (Eric Morales), a now-imprisoned and seemingly remorseless pedophile and serial killer who preyed on preteens in Nancy’s neighborhood.

Raleigh Ensemble Players will present "Frozen" on March 16-18, 22-25, and 29-31 at 213 Fayetteville St. in downtown Raleigh, NC
