Gulfshore Playhouse knocked one straight off the tee and hit a hole in one Friday. Farce “The Fox on the Fairway,” which mixes golf, romance and fashion keeps the audience in stitches. Pitching wedges, drivers, putters and nine irons – golf was never so much fun.
“The Fox on the Fairway” comes from Ken Ludwig; he also wrote “Lend Me a Tenor” and “Moon Over Buffalo.” Quail Valley Golf Club faces Crouching Squirrel in the inter-club championship. Quail Valley’s director, Henry Bingham, makes an outrageous bet on the match – and things go wrong. Bumbling assistant Justin takes the field, with Quail Valley’s pride, Henry’s job – and the honor of Justin’s brand-new fiance Louise – at stake.
