Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon to star in Foxfinder in the West End
Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon is set to star in a revival of Dawn King’s award-winning play Foxfinder, which is set to get its West End premiere later this year.
Rheon, best-known as Ramsay Bolton in the hit mythical TV series, and will play William Bloor, a foxfidner who is sent to a farm to investigate an infestation. The family-run farm he has been employed to search has hit well below its harvest targets, and when the government want answers as to why, Bloor finds more questions facing him instead.
The play premiered at the Finborough Theatre in 2011, when King won the Papatango New Writing Prize for the play, directed by Blanche McIntyre.
The West End premiere 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.
Iwan Rheon also starred in the cult E4 series Misfits, and on stage he has appeared in Spring Awakening at the Novello for which he won an Olivier for best performance in a supporting role in a musical, and Remembrance Day at the Royal Court.
Foxfinder is at the Ambassadors Theatre from 6th September to 5th January.
Foxfinder tickets are available now.
