Nemide May (Albatross, Represent Theatre; Silent Witness; Doctors) is newly-cast in the role of Meera.

Directed by James Hillier (Sunnymead Court, The Actors Centre/ Arcola; Not Talking, Arcola), the production will feature movement direction by Gerrard Martin (…cake, Theatre Peckham; GHBoy, Charing Cross Theatre) and intimacy direction by Robbie Taylor Hunt (Everything After, Q Theatre Auckland). Additional creatives include design work by Erin Guan (Tokyo Rose, Edinburgh Fringe), lighting and projection design by award-winning Will Monks (Ali & Dahlia, Pleasance; Trojan Horse, Edinburgh Fringe) and sound by Josh Anio Grigg (Faith, Hope & Charity, National Theatre; Crucible, Yard Theatre).

Lauded for its incredibly authentic performances and exceptional writing, FOXES tells a deeply moving and complex story of family, community and sexual identity, tackling the Black gay experience with tenderness and beautiful depth.

The production will be accompanied by an exciting Associated Programme encompassing a number of professional development sessions. The programme is presented in partnership with Mind in Haringey and Afridiziak and includes movement and martial arts workshops and a poetry session with Poetic Unity.

Highlights comprise multi-award-winning playwright Roy Williams in conversation with Dexter Flanders and a writing workshop with poet, playwright, performer, Inua Ellams and a scratch night inspired by FOXES on the theme of ‘Animal Instincts’.
