About the show...
The smash hit screwball comedy THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY is the latest work by award-winning playwright, Ken Ludwig, whose previous shows include Broadway hits, LEND ME A TENOR, MOON OVER BUFFALO and the musical, CRAZY FOR YOU.
It's about three romances that play out amidst a grueling golf tournament, a slew of mistaken identities, emotional mulligans, slamming doors and rapid-fire chip shots.
The setting is the Quail Valley Country Club taproom where they are preparing to take on archrival Crouching Squirrel Country Club in the Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament. With a sizable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, "fabulous" sweaters and an exploding vase.
