The final crack at a play begun by Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens, The Frozen Deep is inspired by the fateful Franklin Expedition, a naval voyage that was stranded in the Arctic in the 1840s, and is still making headlines today.
Four young women search for meaning in that space between hope and loss while one of them harbors a secret that could turn all their optimism against them. When that secret is revealed on the other side of the ocean, the men of the expedition wrestle with survival and, indeed, what in fact they have been living for.
A challenging drama for advanced actors and directors with a deft touch, The Frozen Deep was crafted in recognition of the need for prominent roles for women and timeless human stories. This play may produced without royalty or restriction, provided all credit is given as rendered on the title page.
