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.
