Synopsis A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, A 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

Cast Details

This is a classic farce, a very physical play (and also lots of kissing for every cast member), so books will be down after 3 weeks, to give us 3 weeks to get the movements with the lines right. It will be a lot fun, and hard work. A big lesson in flexing those comedy muscles.
