Freeze!, playwright Arch Brown's award-winning "serious farce" about desperate, disparate strangers icebound together, ends its scheduled run Oct. 25. The play made its New York premiere, Sept. 30. at the 30th Street Theatre. Previews began Sept. 25.

The play, staged Off-Off-Broadway in association with The Glines, won the 1998 Eric Bentley New Play Competition (awarded by the New Phoenix Theatre on the Park of Buffalo) after a staging at the Adobe Theatre in Arizona.

Freeze!, through Oct. 25, features a flasher, a virgin, a parent and a redneck, icebound in a house with a "murderous misfit." The company also dubs the script "a comedy of bad manners." The cast includes Chad Beckim, Philippe Cu Leong, Nora Hummel, Lindsey Lofaso, Kevin Tiernan and Thomas F. Walsh. Francine L. Trevens directs.

Brown's News Boy, originally produced by The Glines, has been produced throughout the country, including at the Players Theatre Off Broadway.

All seats are $20. The 30th Street Theatre is at 259 W. 30th St. in Manhattan. For information, call (212) 714-3966. -- By Kenneth Jones and Sean McGrath
