From 7 – 17 Jan 2015 Birmingham Hippodrome, Wales Millennium Centre and Christopher Green presented The Frozen Scream in our Patrick Centre studio, starring Rula Lenska.
Based on the lost 1928 supernatural murder-mystery novel, The Frozen Scream told the chilling tale of a group who found themselves stranded at an abandoned lodge in the depths of winter. Forced to entertain themselves, they began to tell the tale of Jack Frost, the most terrifying of the Frost Giants. But as the story took a shocking twist, they discovered they should have heeded the early warnings to ‘beware the ice’.
Surrounded by mystery and intrigue, the original novel was quick to receive critical acclaim but fell out of favour when a series of mysterious deaths led to the belief that the novel was cursed. Undeterred by these conspiracy theories, Olivier-award winning entertainer Christopher Green (Tina C, Ida Barr, Office Party) and one of the UK’s best-selling novelists, Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, The Little Stranger) brought this largely unread work to the stage in an adaptation that sent seriously spooky – and unexpected – shivers down spines!
Was everything as it seemed?!
