Darkly comic dystopia
Olivier Award-winner Iwan Rheon and Poldark’s Heida Reed top the bill in this highly-acclaimed dystopian drama set in a reimagined England where flood, famine and fear are taking hold.
As harvests fail, food becomes scarce and paranoia spreads, foxes have become the focus of a nation’s fury. When the Coveys fail to meet government harvest targets, their farm – and everything they hold dear – comes under scrutiny from William Bloor, an official Foxfinder. Suspecting a contamination by the ‘red beasts’, the evangelical Bloor will stop at nothing to hunt down and destroy this threat to the country’s tenuous hold on civilisation.
Fans of epic fantasy Game of Thrones will have the opportunity to see lead actor Rheon – who played one of the series’ most shocking characters, Ramsay Bolton – bring to the stage his talent for weaving dark humour with unsettling realism.
Opening in London with a limited run and Killology’s director Rachel O’Riordan at the helm, this West End premiere of Dawn King’s award-winning play is set to be one of the most sought-after tickets in town.
