A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, 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.

Bingham, president of a prestigious  Country Club, is in a difficult position, less by finding out that his newly hired hand, Justin, is in love with Louise, the waitress at the club house, but by the discovery that the golfer he thought would play for his club has switched sides. He's been recruited by his counterpart and opponent, the cocky and arrogant Dickie, and the huge bet he had foolishly wagered is now likely to be lost.

Fortunately, Bingham discovers that Justin is actually quite a good golfer and finagles his nomination. Justin does not disappoint and has a huge lead, when close to its end the tournament is interrupted by bad weather. Then the romance between Justin and Louise takes a turn for the worse, threatening the outcome of the match.

Bingham is desperate, and the appearance of his wife complicates the matter, as she catches him much too close to Pamela, his sex-starved vice-president.

Can Bingham win the wager, and get his life in order?

Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, The Fox on the Fairway is a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers.

The Fox on the Fairway features:

  • Henry Quintal as Justin
  • Samantha Wilson as Louise
  • Jonathan Williams as Bingham
  • Kathy Reardon as Pamela
  • David Marshall as Dickie
  • Elizabeth Kelso as Muriel
