Ken Ludwig, author of such hilarious comedies as LEND ME A TENOR and MOON OVER BUFFALO writes this fast-paced comedy as a tribute to the great English farces of the 1930's and 40's.
THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY takes audiences on a hilarious romp as Henry Bingham, director of Quail Valley Country Club, prepares to meet his arch rival, Dickie Bell (the lowest chiseler on earth) director of Crouching Squirrel Country Club, in the annual inter-club golf tournament.
To assure his win this year, Henry has a "shoe-in" golfer. So, he proposes a rather large bet to Dickie, which Dickie accepts, along with Henry's wifes' antique shop as well. Problem is, Dickie then tells Henry the great golfer has decided to switch clubs and is now playing for Crouching Squirrel!
Beside himself, Henry has only 20 minutes to come up with another golfer or forfeit the tournament. Out of the blue, and most unexpectedly, comes our young hero Justin, an amazinbg golfer, but little known in the area. Quickly he is initiated into Quail Valley and after 16 holes, holds a nine point lead!
Justin then proposes to Louise and gives her the family diamond, which she promptly loses. Justin goes into a fit of remorse and then drops all 9 points with one hole left to play! And while showing off, he breaks his arm!
What to do? How bad can it get? How many other golfers are there? Will true love win out, will the tournament come to a hilarious conclusion? YES! And it is totally unexpected!
