FOX ON THE FAIRWAY – FESTIVAL 56

Princeton, IL

In the small town of Princeton, there is much drama.  Join us at the Festival 56 Theatre, for a tribute to the English faces of the 1930s and 1940s. The Fox on the Fairway takes the audience on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy residents of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and over –the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s an outstanding comedy that recalls some of the Marx Brothers’ classics.  This is a charming adventure from Ken Ludwig, author of Lend Me A Tenor, about love, life and man’s eternal love affair….with golf!
