About Fox

“I couldn’t imagine having a child. Not even when I was sat in my Primark bikini in a plastic hot tub at Homerton Hospital, sucking the shit out of the gas and air… There’s a man sitting on the wall outside the flat. He just sat down the other day and never left.” Inspired by true events, Katie Guicciardi’s sharply-observed drama explores our complex relationship with “help” – our desire to give it and our need to seek it for ourselves – in an increasingly isolating society. Directed by Offie award nominee Lisa Cagnacci. Juxtaposing postpartum depression and the silent issues of motherhood with the plight of the homeless, Fox addresses privilege and isolation in a contemporary, urban environment. It looks at the tension between the materially disadvantaged homeless man and the privileged mother and asks who is worthy of help and what do we really need from each other. Studying the weight of responsibility of another human being in two very different ways, Fox is a moving and insightful first play.
