Fox and Hound Theatre Company
Portraying the realistic, people and situations you could know
After our sell- out run last year, we will be fresh from the Brighton Fringe and our first Scottish tour, performing two Tennessee Williams shorts as a double-bill and a piece of new writing.
This Scottish company will have you asking questions, carried away on the wind and facing the realities of life.
Both productions appear at Venue 236, Greenside@Infirmary Street. 4-26 (Excl 13, 20)
Tennessee Williams’ Double-bill: SpaceForest, 1:45pm (1Hr) Ivan’s Widow: Set in a Psychiatrists office in the late 1970s, America.
Cast: Codge Crawford and Helen Fox.
In attempting to cope with her husband’s death, she seeks answers from her psychiatrist and “the bottle” struggling to differentiate between fantasy and reality. The psychiatrist is a cold, promiscuous and predatory man, but with a seemingly genuine concern for his patient.This play leaves you wondering whose truth is real…
Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen:
Set in a studio flat in New York, 1930s
Cast: man Codge Crawford, woman Helen Fox.
In economic depres- sion, a couple find themselves in a cycle of deprivation. They have ravaged appearances and the scene between them is one of eternal repetition where emotional content is worn out and they live in the acceptance of something hopelessly inalterable.
‘In his end lies his beginning: almost the last and first plays of Tennessee Williams … are a must-see. Beautifully crafted performances, these rare Williams plays deserve packed houses and Fox and Hound themselves accolades for putting on… Williams plays ... and proving a special attunement to them all’ (Simon Jenner, Fringe Review, Brighton)
‘Helen Fox is mesmerising once more’ (Roz Scott, Fringe Guru, Brighton)
