About the Show
This production is based on the hugely successful ‘Foxfinder’ by playwright Dawn King. The play is a dark, psychological, and comical take featuring several subtexts, conspiracies and alternative facts that play with the viewer’s mind. Undoubtedly, It is a gripping tale from start to finish.
‘Foxfinder’ is one of those rare plays that remains highly relevant in today’s day and age, and it tackles and talks in detail about issues that are present in the real world. More often than not, audiences once they have witnessed the show, will be found pondering over deeper questions relating to the society and the government. That indeed is the ultimate redeeming factor of this production.

As mentioned earlier, the play is set in the English countryside at a time when the country is going through a crisis. Due to heavy flooding, there happens to be a shortage of food in the country and an excess of worry. Right from the beginning of the play, our attention is brought to the Coveys, a married couple (struggling with the loss of their child) whose harvest levels end up below expectations. Because the Coveys have failed to meet their annual quota, the government sends in William Bloor, a seasoned ‘foxfinder’, to investigate the reason for this shortfall, and to find out whether the Coveys have been subjected to a fox infestation. William begins his investigation and as he delves deeper into the mystery, he along with the Coveys end up discovering more than what they bargained for.
West End Performance
‘Foxfinder’ first opened at the Finborough Theater in 2011 and turned out to be a smashing success. The show fetched Dawn King a number of accolades including the Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwright Award in 2013 and the Papatango Playwriting Competition. He was deemed the ‘Most Promising Playwright’ at the Off West End Awards in the year 2012.
The production has been hailed and lauded by both critics and general audiences, often selling out weeks before the performance. The play is directed by Olivier Award Winner Rachel O’Riordan and stars Olivier Award winner Iwan Rheon.
“What did work was Gary McCann’s set, which is split between woods at the back and a farmhouse kitchen at the fore. It created a sylvan, and at times foreboding, atmosphere.”
– The Times
“Director Rachel O’Riordan’s West End transfer of Foxfinder strenuously highlights the tension of Dawn King’s dystopian vision.”
