FOXFINDER

by Dawn King

directed by Lorraine Spenceley

Performance Dates:

Tuesday 24th – Saturday, 28th September 2019, 8pm

In the not too distance future an ecological disaster has plunged England into a second dark age. Constant rain has caused the crops to fail, famine to spread across the land and an authoritarian regime has risen to power. England is on the brink of disaster. The fox has become the enemy of mankind, with power to contaminate farms, influence the weather, unsettle the mind and kill children.

William Bloor has been raised from childhood to be a Foxfinder. His duty is to investigate reports of foxes then eliminate them. Farming couple, Samuel and Judith Covey, who are grieving the death of their son and worried by failing crops, find themselves under investigation by the Foxfinder.

Lorraine says: “As I write these words at work, the International Liberty Association is having a meeting and I am listening to videos and speeches about the erosion of human rights and freedoms. It strikes me that Foxfinder is a parable for the irrational search for scapegoats to explain the ills that haunt mankind. Power in the wrong hands destroys abuses and corrupts.”

Characters

  • William Bloor – The Foxfinder – 19 years old, can be older but must look younger
  • Samuel Covey – 25 -35 years old, a farmer of solid stock
  • Judith Covey – Samuel’s wife, 25 -35 years old
  • Sarah Box – the Covey’s neighbour, 35 years +

The character ages are approximate; I am willing to be flexible.
