Vixen (2021, 2022)
About the show
Saffi is 11. She lives on an estate with her Dad and she is turning into a fox.
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.
The award-winning Travelling Light presents Vixen, an original story by Matt Grinter about a young girl who is turning into a fox.
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

This is what audiences have been saying about Vixen so far:
“Brilliant, funny, imaginative and moving. Really inspired!”
“Captivating storytelling, loved how it moved from mundane to magical…very relatable. I got teary. Loved the message that we all have that wild fox within us.”
“Really fantastic, held the audience completely. To deliver a show single handedly was so impressive. It was lovely for me and my daughter as I tell her ‘though she be but little she is fierce!’ Thank you.”
“We loved it! Beautiful story. Emotional, relatable and full of foxy energy – thank you!”
“Absolutely fantastic performance. So well performed and engaging throughout. Love a show that makes me laugh and cry!”
