Foxfinder is set to hit the Ambassadors Theatre at London’s West End this year, and it’s sure to be a blast. This dark comedy about a dystopian England is not for the faint of heart, but it is a highly anticipated addition to London’s West End. The story follows the Covey family who is being harassed by the government for failing to meet their harvest target. This story of famine, betrayal, and corruption is sure to take the stage by storm and provide hours of entertainment.
Starring in Foxfinder is Iwan Rheon, best known as Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones. He has plenty of stage credits to his name, but Foxfinder may be his most anticipated performance yet.

I and You has been highly regarded since it came to the stage in 2014. It will now be playing at the Hampstead Theatre starting in October, to the delight of many. This sentimental story about a young couple fighting through adolescent angst and heartbreak is a smart but entertaining production that should light up the Hampstead Theatre and draw large crowds. It tackles some heavy subjects and conveys a beautiful message throughout.
In this rendition, Maisie Williams takes the stage as Caroline, the sick teen who falls in love with Anthony as he brings her homework from school. Maisie Williams is well known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, and there’s no question that she’ll provide us with all the laughs and tears that we need in I and You. This is her stage debut, but we are confident that she will bring her top grade acting skills and dole out a strong performance.

True West is the 1980 Sam West play that tackles the subject of sibling rivalries. It is a dramatic and sometimes gut-wrenching story that pulls all the punches. True West will be coming to the Vaudeville Theatre in London’s West End this November. This is the production’s first return to London since its initial run in 1981, and there are high hopes for the new rendition.
Kit Harington stars as the younger brother Austin who goes on to become a screenwriter. Harington is known for his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, where his sometimes-devilish good looks and dark demeanor catapulted him to international fame. There are high expectations for him in True West, as he thoroughly impressed with his last West End performances in Doctor Faustus and War Horse. If anybody can encapsulate the traits of Austin, it’s Harington. We are looking forward to seeing his portrayal and enjoying his mastery of the stage!
