When Tony-nominated playwright Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo, Crazy for You) was looking for the setting of his next comedy, he had an epiphany playing golf. Everything about the game seemed perfect for roasting: the silly outfits, the stuffy country club rules, and the temper tantrums that erupt when a tiny ball doesn't roll into a tiny hole. Ludwig's new play The Fox on the Fairway captures all the absurdities of golf and those that play it. When the heads of two competing country clubs engage in a wager, hijinks are quickly "teed off." A tribute to the English farces of the '30s and '40s, The Fox on the Fairway moves with the speed of a Marx Brothers' classic, complete with rapid-fire dialogue, mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top shenanigans.

The theater is beautiful and comfortable -- easy to see and hear from all seats. We didn't get the dance at the beginning, the comedian was offensive. The actors in the play were excellent, but sorry, it was very long, the characters were not interesting, and I only found one redeeming feature that the character who turned to be the most together was the most needy. Maybe a discussion after would have helped.

Thinking Cap has made a name for itself locally and nationally for tackling challenging works. The company’s artistic director Nicole Stodard was named Best Director by the New Times in 2012.
Thinking Cap is devoted to experimental, provocative, and socially-conscious work. We program plays that tell compelling stories in fresh and surprising ways. Thinking Cap also aims to engage with works that treat a range of identities more accurately reflective of today’s society; to dismantle norms and stereotypes through non-reactionary, honest means; and to present historical works that have rarely or never seen the light of the stage.
