The Bristol-based theatre company performs its exciting new show Vixen for ages 7–12 year-olds and their families on 30 April.

Vixen is an inspiring original story by Matt Grinter (winner of the Papatango Prize 2016 for his debut play ORCA) about a young girl Saffi who lives on an estate with her Dad. After being scratched by a vixen in the raincoat man’s garden Saffi begins to transform and dreams of running away to live with her fox family.
The show explores themes of family and friendship, community, loss, belonging and the joy of learning to appreciate the people and places that surround us.

As writer Matt Grinter explains, “it is a simple and empowering story about how uplifting finding your place in your community can be. The show is about finding your pack and looking for the things in the people around us that make us happy. It is about looking beyond what we see on the surface and getting to know what makes your community vibrant and unique.”Saffi is played by Bristol-based actor and theatre maker, Alice Lamb. Alice says, “I love sharing this story with young people. It has so many layers to it. It’s so much fun but also thrilling and touching at the same time. It’s all about how to feel like you belong in the community you are in, which I think a lot of people can relate to.”

Audiences of all ages can 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. And one thing is for sure, as writer Matt Grinter says,you’ll never look at a fox or the streets around you in the same way again!”

Vixen will be performed at Pegasus Theatre on 30 April. For tickets and further information, visit: www.pegasustheatre.org.uk

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
