Foxfinder, The MFA showcase

Set in the future, this dark comic parable is both unsettling and thought provoking.

Foxfinder, The MFA showcase

A foxfinder arrives at Samuel and Judith’s farm to investigate a suspected contamination, driven by the belief that the beast must be unearthed and destroyed to protect man’s very existence - but his mission threatens to irreparably alter the course of all their lives. Foxfinder, winner of the Papatango New Writing Competition in 2011, is an unsettling, darkly comic parable set in a future both strange and familiar.

Contains violence, loud noises (live gun shots) and scenes of a sexually violent nature.  Not suitable for children.
