Iwan Rheon to star in West End premiere of Foxfinder

Olivier Award-winning star of Game Of Thrones and Misfits, Iwan Rheon, will lead the cast of acclaimed play Foxfinder in its West End premiere.

Having played to multi award-winning acclaim in 2011, Dawn King’s unsettling and darkly comic drama will be revived at the Ambassadors Theatre from 6 September.

Foxfinder is set on a remote farm in dystopian England, where the countryside is gripped by fear of the red beast.

When the Covey family fails to meet their harvest target, the government demands answers, and sends in foxfinder William Bloor to root out the pests. But the search for the animals throws up more sinister questions than answers.

The show will be directed by Rachel O’Riordan, whose production of Killology at the Royal Court won the 2018 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre, and is produced by Bill Kenwright.

Foxfinder at the Ambassadors Theatre

Rheon is best known for his role as the treacherous Ramsay Bolton in Game Of Thrones, as well as his breakout role in E4’s superhero drama Misfits. His previous stage credits include National Theatre Wales’ production of John Osborne’s The Devil Inside Him in 2010 and Aleksey Scherbak’s Remembrance Day at the Royal Court in 2011.

Upon its initial opening at London’s Finborough Theatre in 2011, Foxfinder won writer King the 2013 Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwright award, a Pearson Award Bursary as Playwright-in-Residence at the Finborough, the Papatango Theatre Company new writing competition, and the Off West End award for Most Promising Playwright.

Haunting the mind long after you’ve seen it, Foxfinder will play a strictly limited season until 5 January 2019.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
