Prolific American playwright Ken Ludwig has been producing laughter on stages across the world since his farce Lend Me a Tenor hit Broadway in 1989. Since then his work has included a variety of plays, musicals, and comedies. In 2010 he debuted The Fox on the Fairway. Billed as “A tribute from Ken Ludwig to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s,” it nonetheless has a contemporary (cell phones, Tiger Wood’s meltdown) setting. As presented by Insight Theatre Company, golf, that game of “sticks and dimpled balls,” is the milieu here.
