Unsuccessful West End outing for Dawn King’s intriguing and evocative 2011 dystopian chiller.
Iwan Rheon and Heida Reed star in the West End premiere of Dawn King’s thriller Foxfinder, now playing at the Ambassadors Theatre. Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews…
Foxfinder is a mysterious drama that chimes eerily well with the current political climate and general sense of unease – an atmospheric piece with terrific performances from the cast of four.
Timing is everything. When Foxfinder opened at the Finborough in December 2011, it was hailed as a ‘darkly thrilling’ new voice and subsequently earned its writer, Dawn King, a glut of awards from the Royal National Theatre Foundation Playwright scheme to a Pearson Award Playwright-in-Residence bursary.https://mytheatremates.entstix.com/tickets/foxfinder
The Foxfinder of the title is William (Iwan Rheon) sent to examine the farm of Judith (Heida Reed) and Sam (Paul Nicholls) where the crop yield is below target.
However implausible its set up may be, I really enjoyed Pressure. It’s so much more engaging and fun and gripping than it has any right to be and is a case study in just really superb acting.
Olivier nominee Bryony Hannah (Call the Midwife) and Paul Nicholls (Law & Order, The C-Word, EastEnders) will join the cast of Foxfinder’s West End premiere which begins performances at the Ambassadors Theatre on 6 September 2018

If you’d never heard of the James Stagg before David Haig‘s latest play Pressure, don’t feel bad: neither had he. The writer/star discussed this and much more at the post-show Q&A chaired by Terri Paddock.
This deeply fascinating true story makes for surprisingly compelling drama that reminds us that what a major difference ordinary people made in the outcome of the Second World War.
I would simply implore you to go and see this show. It’s clever, witty, exceptionally well-written, outstandingly acted and kept my attention throughout. Even knowing the outcome, I was fascinated and gripped until the very end.
A keen audience of Anthony Horowitz fans and super sleuthers at Mindgame made for a highly revealing post-show Q&A. How many set secrets did we correctly identify? And which character, plot and research twists? Warning: if you want to be surprised when you see this mind-bending thriller, absolutely DON’T listen to the podcast beforehand. But rise to the […]
Had Mindgame not been advertised as a psychological thriller, I dare say the surprises would have a greater impact. Even so, it’s enjoyable as a homage to true crime and the dark side of the human condition.
Mindgame has been touring for years in bursts, having just delighted the Isle of Wight: so tell the cast of three they’re coming ‘Up West’ for a couple of weeks, keep the tickets well under the 50 mark, set up bargain packages and hope for thrilled bums-on-seats.
Following a UK tour, Anthony Horowitz’s psychological thriller Mindgame is opening at London’s Ambassadors Theatre on 15 May 2018 (running until 2 June, with a press night on 16 May).
