The pieces of the puzzle that make up Laura’s brain don’t seem to fit. When the world doesn’t make sense to her, at school she is labelled problematic. The relationships that Laura has with her mother, teacher and self, highlight that we cannot always see what is in front of us, whether barriers are circumstance or subconscious. It takes just a moment to change everything and begin a new way of thinking. Returning after a 2016 sell-out, Fox & Hound premiere new play Hindsight. Shortlisted for the 2016 David MacLennan writing Award.

Impressive acting. Occasionally slightly creaky script, but nonetheless engaging and intelligent.

Very touching, poignant, and moving play about people who do not ‘fit’ the conventional school system and makes you ask why? And why the system cannot be flexible to encompass more children in different ways. Well acted by the main character Laura.

A very moving play. The two young actors performed with maturity and self-assurance, the two older actors weren't bad either. The multi-purpose set was versatile and practical. I particularly liked the sound and lighting effects used to convey the state of confusion in Laura's mind. Well done Fox and Hound Theatre.

A fantastic play about an autistic girl and the school system - brilliant performances from all and very moving. Highly recommend seeing this!

Very moving play, brilliantly acted, thoroughly authentic. The characters will be with me for some time. If you are dithering on what to see, see this!

This is a deeply moving play about an autistic girl's experiences at school and her relationships with her mother and her teacher. Jill Franklin's writing allows us to sympathise and see the perspective of all the characters but the portrayal of the central character's experience of autism is particularly powerful. All the performances are terrific, but the two 15(!) year old cast members are astonishingly good. A hugely affecting piece of theatre - very highly recommended.

What an emotional, true vision of the experience of a mother and her autistic daughter.
The play should be seen by all teachers/pupils/parents/friends... Well, basically everyone to develop understanding.
It's a must see.

I can not recommend this show enough, I was so moved by its contents and commitment of the actors all of whom gave it 100% the whole package made for a fantastic evenings entertainment. Highly recommended to all.

If you want a show that picks at a fundamental societal and educational issue, and does it well, this is for you. However, the space this is performed in follows thrust staging, I was the awkward bloke who chose to sit on a side, and quickly regretted that choice. If you attend this show, sit in the middle. Fantastic acting from all four cast members shines through in this performance, despite a little slow start on the narrative. I really enjoyed this, and I would have liked to see the show keep going after it ended, but awkward scene changes and inconvenient staging means I'd prefer to see this come back next year, long, faster and better.

Fest (3/5 stars) 110 days ago

Laura isn’t doing well in school. She is disruptive, her teacher says, unable to focus and a danger to the other children. Something needs to be done. When we meet Laura, she is sweet and vulnerable: practicing dance routines, playing with her beloved doll Bear, and agonisingly questioning why the...
