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.

It was gripping from the outset but by the second act we were completely sucked in and quite in love with the characters. THe writing is poetic but clear and the story so devastating and real. Absolutely would recommend it to theater lovers.
About the Ticket Supplier: New Theatre
New Theatre is a multi-cultural theatre producing a season of Nouveau Classic works, blending classics and new works, which speak to and about a diverse contemporary audience by stimulating, provoking, challenging, and entertaining since 1986.
Entering our 25th Anniversary Season, our theatre has flourished under the energetic Artistic Direction of Ricky J. Martinez and Managing Director, Eileen Suarez refining its focus on works which speak of social/religious/humanistic interests, relevant issues of discrimination based on race, gender and sexual orientation, the immigrant’s plight, the role of youth in our community, and for stories from the heart and for the soul which celebrate the mosaic that makes up our South Florida community.
We embrace the voices of early and mid-career playwrights. Many talented artists would not have a forum for their work without our unflagging commitment to “new voices-new work.” We have commissioned and/or produced over fifty world premieres including Nilo Cruz’s 2003 Pulitzer Prize and Steinberg award-winning play Anna in the Tropics, Steinberg and Osborn award nominated Just A Kiss by Catherine Bush, recently published works such as Clarence Darrow’s Last Trial by Shirley Lauro, Elaine Romero’s Barrio Hollywood, and David Caudle’s Sunken Living Room.
Our theatre has been home to several World Premieres of local professional playwrights Michael McKeever, Susan Westfall, Dr. Richard Janaro, Alfred Allan Lewis, Lauren Feldman, and David Caudle which later exhibit nationally and internationally. For the past twenty years, New Theatre has housed, in its modest hundred-seat theatre, over fifty world premieres, and as many Florida premieres.
Our artists have received many honors and awards, including the Key to the City of Coral Gables, Carbonell awards and nominations from the South Florida Theater Critics Association, Best of Miami awards in Miami New Times and SunPost, Best of the Year listings in The Miami Herald and The Sun Sentinel, South Florida Theatre League Silver Palm Awards and 2008 South Florida Theatre Festival Audience Favorite for Miami-Dade County and others to boot!
Our company has been the recipient of funding from The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the City of Coral Gables, The Division of Cultural Affairs of the State of Florida, and The National Endowment for the Arts. New Theatre is a proud member of The Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, Theatre Communications Group, The Theatre League of South Florida, The National New Play Network (NNPN) and the Dade Cultural Alliance.
