Travelling Light Theatre Company presents: Vixen

The award-winning Travelling Light presents Vixen, an original story by Matt Grinter about a young girl who is turning into a fox.

Saffi is 11 and she lives on an estate with her Dad. After being scratched by a vixen in the raincoat man’s garden she begins to transform and dreams of running away to live with her fox family.

But what about her dad and the raincoat man? Soon she will have to choose who her pack really is.

Expect to see beauty hidden in unremarkable places, friendships that don’t follow the rules, the things that unite us and a girl aching to belong.

For ages 7+ and their families

Potential trigger warnings: There are themes of immigration, loss, estrangement and fire in Vixen.
