Sharp of tooth and riddled with a clawing dread, Dawn King's...rural drama is a fierce and fabulous beast.

Why See Foxfinder?

PlaysOlivier WinnersStrictly Limited Runs

A paranoia parable

Starring Iwan Rheon and Heida Reed

The countryside is ravaged by floods and crops are sparse. When a Foxfinder comes to inspect one farming family failing their targets, a routine visit changes all their lives forever. Originally premiering in 2011, Dawn King's 'unsettling parable' entwines desire and desperation with the strength of belief in a land scarred by time and humanity.

Swapping Westeros for the West End is Iwan Rheon as William Bloor, the titular Foxfinder. Believing that foxes are the enemy with the power to purge, contaminate and ruin, he is driven by what he sees as a necessary ambition to sniff out any and all who might threaten the country.

Whilst he might be more well known to audiences for his work in Misfits and as super mean Ramsay Bolton in Game on Thrones, Rheon is no stranger to the stage, with an Olivier award under his belt for his work as Moritz Stiefel in the first West End run of Spring Awakening.
