The Fox On The Fairway | Wednesday, May 8–Sunday, June 2

The Fox On The Fairway is a charming screwball adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with … golf. Written by Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo), the author hits a hole-in-one with his tribute to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. Two rival country clubs prepare for their annual grudge match. Filled with mistaken romance, dreadful attire, emotional mulligans and
silly shenanigans, this play is a “tour-de-course” of rapid-fire chip shots and frenzied miscommunications. $39 &up/general admission. $15/Student. Actor’s Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile. Coral Gables. 305-444-9293. www.actorsplayhouse.org
