The Fox on the Fairway @ Manhattan Arts Center
Feb 27 @ 7:30 pm – Mar 8 @ 2:00 pm

The Fox on the Fairway – a play by Ken Ludwig

It’s the 47th Annual Interclub Tournament between Quail Valley Country Club and Crouching Squirrel Country Club.  Henry Bingham has arranged for the city’s best player to play for his club (Quail Valley), and makes a large bet that his team will prevail…breaking a five year losing streak and saving his job.  His counterpart at Crouching Squirrel (Dickie Bell) has gotten the star player to switch sides on the eve of the match.  Bingham must now try to find a suitable replacement, or risk losing the match, his job, and a large sum of money.  Perhaps that replacement player is right under his nose.  Add in romantic hijinks, a lovers’ quarrel, and surprises…and you’ve got “The Fox on the Fairway”!
Student and Military discounts are available.
