Foxfinder, the Dawn King play currently running at the Ambassadors Theatre in London, will close early in the West End, playing its final performance later this month. Starring Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon, Foxfinder is set on an underperforming farm where William Bloor, a professional ‘foxfinder’ has been sent to find out why. The play, which opened last month, was set to run until 5th January 2019. It will now close in the West End later this month, on 20th October.
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.
