Foxfinder is a thrilling dystopian drama set in a futuristic England and tells the story of young William Bloor, a "foxfinder" who arrives at Samuel and Judith Covey's farm to investigate a suspeted fox infestation. But the inquistion is only the beginning of a series of questions with no answers, and leads William on a mysterious journey he never saw coming.

Why Watch Foxfinder

Foxfinder is an award-winning play by Dawn King. This spell-binding dystopian drama is a darkly comic take on the relationship between a paranoid, controlling government and the citizens goverened by it. Starring Iwan Rheon from Game of Thrones as the titular "foxfinder", this compelling drama highlights certain political and psychological metaphors that we can relate to the world around us today. King has created a wan, satirical masterpiece that is sure to linger on one's mind long after having watched the play.

The Story

Set in a dystopian future only referred to as "Soon", the story follows a farming couple, Samuel and Judith Covey, who live on a distant farm in the English countryside. The couple is dealing with a death within the family, and the fact that their crops are failing and their farm is flooded. To add to their woes, the government sends a foxfinder, young William Bloor, to investigate them. What William finds out, however, is much more than he or the Coveys bargained for.

Critics Reviews

"Director Rachel O’Riordan’s West End transfer of Foxfinder strenuously highlights the tension of Dawn King’s dystopian vision"
-The Guardian

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
