‘Amy Hohn, Michael Mastro, Peter Scolari, and Mary Testa all working on a new Ken Ludwig farce is like the perfect storm of comedy. Hang on to your hats,” says David Saint, artistic director of George Street Playhouse. “They are sure to blow the roof off the place with laughter.”

Three comic veterans — Michael Mastro, last seen at GSP in “Inspecting Carol,” “The Pillowman,” and “The Sunshine Boys,” Peter Scolari (“Inspecting Carol” and TV’s “Newhart”), and Mary Testa, last seen at GSP in “Lend Me a Tenor,” return to the New Brunswick theater in Ken Ludwig’s new comedy “The Fox on the Fairway.”

According to a press statement, the play opens as underdog Quail Valley Country Club prepares to take on archrival Crouching Squirrel in this year’s Annual Inter-Club Tournament. With a sizeable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters, and an exploding vase. Sex and water hazards collide in this artful madcap adventure on love and golf. Previews start on Tuesday, March 22; opening night is set for Friday, March 25; and the play runs through Sunday, April 17.

Amy Hohn’s most recent New York credits include appearances in the Broadway productions of “November” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” She has appeared at McCarter and several other regional theaters. Film credits include “You Don’t Know Jack,” “College Road Trip,” “War of the Worlds,” “Along Came Polly and Hitch.” Hohn has been seen on the small screen the series “The Good Wife,” “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Ed,” and “The Guiding Light.”
