For Those That Cry When They Hear The Foxes Scream, Tristan Bates Theatre - Review

"What would you choose? Toes for fingers or fingers for toes?" So begins Charlotte Hamblin's provacative drama For Those Who Cry When They Hear The Foxes Scream. Women's stories involving psychiactric care have proven to be fertile ground for plays, especially given the emperical evidence that even in the present day, there is a greater bias for women versus men to need care. Sarah Kane's Cleansed and 4.48 Psychosis (and Terry Johnson's Hysteria) are arguably some of the first examples of this sub-genre. Hamblin's play, while set in a psychiatric facility is actually the relationship of a gay female couple and how in this atmosphere of honesty and candour they can be frank about their own difficulties.
