THEY SAY

This is the sort of small-scale gem that could easily slip under the radar in the face of noisier shows with better publicity budgets. Blueprint Theatre Company offers a scintillating revival of Bryony Lavery’s Frozen, a grimly compelling and multi-award-winning drama about the after-effects of the murder of a child.
