Foxfinder enjoyed a successful debut run at the Finborough Theatre back in 2011, receiving rave reviews and winning several awards, including the 2013 Royal National Theatre Foundation playwright award for King. In September 2018, this success is being transferred to the Ambassadors Theatre with a new cast and under the direction of Rachel O’Riordan. In 2016, O’Riordan's production of Iphigenia in Splott
transferred from the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff to the National Theatre and had a very successful
tour of the UK.
King has also won numerous other awards for her work in theatre, film, TV, and radio. Her short film The Karman Line, starring Olivia Coleman and Shaun Dooley won 18 awards in its international festival screenings and was nominated for a BAFTA.
Director Rachel O'Riordan
Set in a decaying countryside full of crop failures, food shortages, and
the omnipresent pest of the fox, young foxfinder William Bloor is sent
by a looming central government to investigate a small, deteriorating
farm owned by the Samuel and Judith Covey suspected of having a fox
infestation. A tightly-packed, tense thriller with dark humorous overtones about human imperfection, and many small twists and turns, audiences are promised to be on the edge of their seats for this one.
Iwan Rheon, recipient of an Olivier Award, takes the lead role. Having previously played disturbed, but dedicated, young men in his highly praised performances in Game of Thrones and Misfits, he’s a great choice for the role of William Bloor who fits this archetype.
So, if you missed its 2011 run, this will be the perfect chance to see this critically acclaimed writing in action. We’re also excited to see what O'Riordan and Rheon will give to the tense and emotional mood of Foxfinder.
