Foxfinder Tickets

Our Review 3 / 5

Following its premiere at the Finborough Theatre in 2011, Dawn King’s unsettlingly play Foxfinder makes its West End premiere starring Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon.

Following William Bloor, the play explores belief, desire and responsibility as the Foxfinder arrives at a farm to investigate a potential contamination. What he finds changes not only his life, but the lives of farmers Sam and Judith Covey in the process.

Iwan Rheon is best-known for playing Ramsay Bolton in the hit mythical TV series Game of Thrones, as well as starring in the cult E4 series Misfits. On stage, he won an Olivier Award for his supporting role in the West End production of Spring Awakening at the Novello Theatre.

Foxfinder opened in November 2011, as part of the Papatango New Writing Festival, directed by Blanche McIntyre to a spread of four and five star reviews, with critics like Michael Billington calling it an ‘arresting and individual work that haunts the mind long after you've seen it’.

Award-winning writer Dawn King’s other work includes the short film The Kármán Line, and the plays Ciphers and Brave New World. Foxfinder won the Papatango New Writing Prize in 2011, and also saw King win the National Theatre Foundation Playwright Award in 2013.

Our Review of Foxfinder


Foxfinder, Dawn King’s 2011 Papatango-winning play, is a lesson in allegory – a subtly unsettling exploration of the fragility of belief. The script is seamless, a dystopian fable that hauntingly unfolds and rightly deserves its place on the West End stage. Although King is a master of her craft, this production of Foxfinder does somewhat miss the mark. Read more
