What is Foxfinder about?
King’s unsettling and darkly comic drama is a parable about the irrational search for scapegoats to explain the ills that haunt mankind.
Set in an English countryside on the brink of crisis, William Bloor, a foxfinder arrives at Judith and Samuel Covey’s farm to investigate a suspected fox infestation. The Covey’s harvest has failed to meet their target and the government wants to know why.
Trained from childhood, William is fixated on his mission to unearth the animals that must be to blame for the Covey’s woes. But as the hunt progresses, William finds more questions than answers…
Foxfinder is booking from 6 September 2018 until 5 January 2019 at The Ambassadors Theatre, London.
