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.
