Bryony Hannah and Paul Nicholls join Iwan Rheon in Foxfinder
Full casting has been announced for Dawn King's Foxfinder in the West End.
Olivier nominee Bryony Hannah and Paul Nicholls will join the previously announced Heida Reed ('Poldark') and Olivier winner Iwan Rheon ('Game of Thrones') in the production.
Hannah is best known for playing Sister Mary Cynthia in six series of 'Call the Midwife' on the BBC. Her theatre credits include The Children’s Hour (Harold Pinter Theatre), where she played opposite Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss and was nominated for an Olivier Award. Nicholls shot to fame when he joined EastEnders in 1996. His previous theatre credits include Long Day’s Journey Into Night (Lyric Theatre), Vincent in Brixton (National Theatre), Billy Liar (Bush Theatre), The Shawshank Redemption (UK Tour) and The Promise (Tricycle Theatre, now Kiln Theatre).
The play focuses on a farming family who are struggling to feed themselves due to a plague caused by a fox contamination. After William Bloor (Rheon) arrives to root out the beast, the community descends into chaos and the course of the evening changes their lives forever. Foxfinder will be directed by Rachel O’Riordan, who directed the Royal Court and Sherman Theatre co-production of Killology, winning the Olivier Award for best achievement in an affiliate theatre earlier this year.
Foxfinder is at the Ambassadors Theatre from 6th September to 5th January.
Foxfinder tickets are available now.
