Be one of the first to see the British premiere of this hilarious farce, written by Ken Ludwig, one of America’s most performed playwrights. This comedy is packed with slapstick, quick-fire wit and tongue-in-cheek humour – all delivered at breakneck speed.
It’s the day of the annual golf tournament between rival country clubs. Bingham, president of Quail Valley, discovers that his star player has switched sides. Wagering his wife’s antique shop on the outcome now seems like less of a sure bet. Fortunately, he discovers that his new young assistant is a phenomenally good golfer.
Bad weather, the lead lost, the shop is under threat, and Bingham’s wife catches him too close to his stunning sex-starved vice-president!
What else could possibly go wrong…? Golfing has never been so outrageous!
‘Ken Ludwig has a wicked sense of comedic anarchy, giving his characters such zany idiosyncrasies that they soar to dizzying heights!’ The Washington Examiner
