Fox Hunting came about because a young man believed that the stories of many youths in South London needed to be heard.

Created by David Alade, 21, it is a verbatim styled piece - the piece of work created from the real transcript of individuals - that looks at the stories of five young men and their experiences with knife crime in London.

Alade made contact with and interviewed four individuals who grew up in South London and had an experience of knife crime that affected their life and some of the choices they made prior to the experience.

The interviewees who choose to remain anonymous had their interviews turned into transcripts and then artistically into a play that brings about laughter, remorse and sagacity towards the lives of just some normal teenagers.

Presented by Elah Productions; a new theatrical company that supports new talent who are looking to tell stories in a refreshing and artistic way.

Note: contains strong language.


The characters - Terrel, Lawrence, Jake, Darral and Joshua - converse about their experiences comparing their innocence to that of foxes that fell victim to fox hunting.

It is a play that aims to tell the truth and give insight about the lives of our youths today.
