Review this show

Overview

England is in crisis. Fields are flooded, food is scarce and fear of the red beast grips the land.

William Bloor, a foxfinder, arrives at Judith and Samuel Covey’s farm to investigate a suspected fox infestation. The Covey’s harvest has failed to meet their target and the government wants to know why. Trained from childhood, William is fixated on his mission to unearth the animals that must be to blame for the Covey's woes. But as the hunt progresses, William finds more questions than answers…

A darkly comic, spell-binding drama, Foxfinder, directed by Rachel O’Riordan (Olivier Award for Killology - Royal Court), asks how far belief can take you.

Critic reviews

Neat, slick, streamlined four-hander

Exeunt

The Game of Thrones curse strikes again

· The Telegraph

Dawn King’s dystopian drama should feel topical, but it’s poorly served by this staging

· The Financial Times

The drama that made King’s name falls flat in Rachel O’Riordan’s revival starring Iwan Rheon and Paul Nicholls

· The Guardian

As the story becomes more clear it exerts less grip, and it risks feeling like a laboured parable about the hazards of looking for scapegoats

· Evening Standard

Dawn King’s intriguing, Iwan Rheon-starring dystopia loses some of its mystique in the West End

· Time Out

A fantastic turn from Paul Nicholls as the grieving Samuel, fervently prowling the stage, almost as animalistic as those he tries to hunt

· WhatsOnStage

Heida Reed shines as the level-headed Judith, and some of the best scenes are between her and Bryony Hannah’s Sarah

· Theatre Weekly

Dawn King’s disturbing dystopian drama still shines, despite a stiff, self-conscious production

· The Stage
