Suranne Jones & Jason Watkins star in new play Frozen

TV superstar Suranne Jones will join Jason Watkins in psychological thriller Frozen next February.

The actress, who made her name as gobby barmaid Karen McDonald in long running soap Coronation Street, is no stranger to our TV screens, having gone on to carve a career for herself as one of the UK’s finest acting talents in some of the country’s best loved television dramas.

Other parts include starring roles in the acclaimed series Scott & Bailey and the award-winning Doctor Foster, for which she won a BAFTA award in 2016.

Jones is also no stranger to the stage either, having previously starred in the 2013 West End revival of Jonathan Harvey’s Beautiful Thing.

In the revival of Bryony Lavery’s acclaimed 1998 play Frozen, the actress will be joined by Being Human star Jason Watkins. The award-winning show, about retribution, remorse and redemption, explores the interwoven lives of three strangers as they try to make sense of the unimaginable.

Suranne will play the character of a mother whose child goes missing, and the stage drama has been highlighted as having chilling similarities to both the Madeleine McCann and Milly Dowler real-life cases.

Directed by Jonanthan Munby, the play will run for a strictly limited 12-week season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 9 February next year.

Jones, who is currently on-screen starring in the second series of Doctor Foster on the BBC can be seen on The Jonathan Ross Show tomorrow night talking about the play.
