Fox on the Fairway leads the audience through the antics of the members of the Quail Valley Golf and Country Club and their rival, the Crouching Squirrel Golf Club. What was born on a golf bet, the play’s conflict quickly accelerates, through the use of mistaken identity, lies, secrets, and multiple entrances and exits, to utter chaos. This is a fun show with a versatile cast.
The six characters needed are as follows:
HENRY BINGHAM (mid 40s): Director of the Quail Valley Country Club. He is witty and cynical at times. He gets into a high-stakes bet on a golf tournament and is determined to do what it takes to win. He is also unhappy in his marriage to Muriel and becomes involved with Pamela.
PAMELA PEABODY (39): A member of the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive and sophisticated, but a bit loose and a bit of a drinker. Throughout the production she aids Bingham in his plans to make sure their club wins.
JUSTIN HICKS (25): Bingham’s new eager-to-please assistant who volunteers his services as a golfer to help Quail Valley win the golf tournament. He is romantically involved with Louise and proposes to her early on, but becomes emotionally distraught when things become difficult between them.
LOUISE HEINDBEDDER (23): A waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive, and a bit flighty, but studious. She gets engaged to Justin early on, but a mishap results in her becoming very upset over their future together, making her bawl at a moment’s notice.
DICKIE BELL (mid 40s): The director of the rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club, with whom Bingham gets into a high-stakes wager . He is a bit obnoxious, including his fashion sense, but tries to come off as good-natured. He is Pamela’s ex and has a thing for Bingham’s wife Muriel
MURIEL BINGHAM (40s): Bingham’s wife, who runs an antique shop, which becomes part of the wager between Henry and Dickie. Generally overbearing and stern, she somehow has a soft spot for Dickie.
