Fox On the Fairway
"A grand slam! A slam dunk!"
--The Washington City Paper
Following the Tony-nominated revival of Lend Me a Tenor on Broadway, Ken Ludwig's new play, A Fox On the Fairway, debuted at the Signature Theatre in Washington, D.C. on October 19, 2010. A tribute 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.
"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."
