Los Altos Stage Company’s “The Fox on the Fairway” stars Brooke Silva (as Louise) and Michael Weiland (Justin).

The Los Altos Stage Company production of Ken Ludwig’s new comedy, “The Fox on the Fairway,” is scheduled to run through Dec. 14 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. The fast-paced comedy is filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top romantic shenanigans.
