A FOX ON THE FAIRWAY by Ken Ludwig
A hilarious romp that hits a hole-in-one with British comedy
‘Golf and sex are the only things you can enjoy without being good at them’
Join two rival country clubs as they tee off for their annual golf tournament – but expect a lot of bunkers along the way. Club presidents Henry Bingham and Dickie Bell place a hefty bet on the outcome of the game, including Muriel Bingham’s beloved antique shop. Henry regrets this wager when he discovers his star player has switched sides – but his luck returns when his new assistant, Justin, turns out to be a phenomenally good golfer. After that narrow escape, nothing can possibly go wrong… can it?
This British premiere of a charmingly whacky adventure about love, life and a man’s eternal affair with… golf is filled with headlong humour, exuberant personalities and romantic entanglements. King of comedy Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Crazy For You) pays tribute to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. Golfing has never been so outrageous!

Graham Linehan (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) has adapted this much-loved film for the stage, mixing madcap comedy and criminal capers to hilarious effect.
