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. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf. 

REVIEWS:

Ken Ludwig has a wicked sense of comedic anarchy, giving his characters such zany idiosyncrasies that they soar to dizzying heights!

The Washington Examiner

Farce raised to an art.

The Home-News Tribune

It’s a grand slam! A slam dunk! A Dunkin’ Donut hole! A hole in one! [A Fox on the Fairway] hums like a well-oiled machine but retains its human soul.

The Washington City Paper

Hilarious! There's great fun waiting for you with A Fox on the Fairway

The Fairfax Times

Ken Ludwig has written a masterpiece (with) all of the elements that will most certainly make it a hit show from coast to coast.
