The British premiere of Ken Ludwig’s comedy will take place at the theatre from the 25th August.
It’s the day of the annual golf tournament between rival country clubs. Bingham, president of Quail Valley, discovers that his star player has switched sides. Wagering his wife’s antique shop on the outcome now seems like less of a sure bet. Fortunately, he discovers that his new young assistant is a phenomenally good golfer.
Bad weather, the lead lost, the shop is under threat, and Bingham’s wife catches him too close to his stunning sex-starved vice-president!
What else could possibly go wrong…? Golfing has never been so outrageous!
This British premiere production is directed by Philip Wilson and is set to star: Damien Matthews (The Woman in Black, Tour & Fortune Theatre), Natalie Walter (Noises Off, National Theatre), Romayne Andrews (Hamlet, Royal Shakespeare Company), Simon Lloyd (The 39 Steps, Criterion Theatre), Sarah Quist (Travesties, Apollo Theatre) and Ottilie Mackintosh who recently appeared as Young Jo in Joanna Lumley’s Little Cracker.
Written by two time Olivier Award winner Ken Ludwig, A Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a crazy journey about love, life and man’s eternal obsession with golf.
