Iwan Rheon will star in a revival of Dawn King’s play Foxfinder which is set to premiere at London’s Ambassadors Theatre this September.
The show, described as an ‘unsettling and darkly comic drama’ will open in the West End on 6th September where it will run until 5th January 2019.
Iwan Rheon is best known for his roles as the treacherous Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones and Simon in E4’s superhero drama Misfits.
Further casting for the play, which was first produced at the Finborough Theatre in 2011 after King won a Papatango writing prize, will be announced at a later date.
What is Foxfinder about?
England is in crisis. Fields are flooded, food is scarce, and fear of the red beast grips the land. 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.
