LA Stage Company's 'Fairway' on the back nine at Bus Barn

The Los Altos Stage Company production of Ken Ludwig’s new comedy, “The Fox on the Fairway,” is scheduled to close Sunday at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

A tribute to the English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, “Fox” takes audiences on a romp that pulls the rug out from under the stuffy denizens of two competing golf country clubs. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, the fast-paced comedy recalls the classic Marx Brothers’ movies.
