About the Play:

The Fox on the Fairway is a full-length comedy by Ken Ludwig. Underdog Quail Valley Country Club prepares to take on arch-rival Crouching Squirrel in this year's Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament. With a sizable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters and an exploding vase. The Fox on the Fairway is a charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf.

The Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. It's the day of the annual golf tournament between rival country clubs. Bingham, president of Quail Valley, discovers that his star player has switched sides. Wagering his wife's antique shop on the outcome now seems like less of a sure bet. Fortunately, he discovers that his new young assistant is a phenomenally good golfer. Bad weather, the lead lost, the shop is under threat, and Bingham's wife catches him too close to his stunning sex-starved vice-president! What else could possibly go wrong…? Golfing has never been so outrageous! A tribute from Ken Ludwig (one of America's great comic playwrights) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, A Fox On the Fairway is filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans,

The Fox on the Fairway premiered in 2010 at the Signature Theatre in Washington, D.C. Since then the play had regional premieres at professional theatres across the US and has been mounted by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.
