ALEXANDRIA, VA, - Golf aficionados will enjoy this Ken Ludwig play, which is as easy and refreshing as a G and T at the 18th hole.  This light and frothy comedy is a perfect way to spend a summer evening after a day of cursing on the driving range.

Players know that certain stressors can throw off their game.  So it is with golf protégé Justin (Cameron Mc Bride), who has been brought in to salvage an annual grudge match between two rival country clubs.  A massive wager is on the line, as well.  Theater goer Larry, of Alexandria, commented that “Being distracted and off your game is a real problem for golfers.  This play shows that in a very funny and humorous way.”  Great shenanigans follow to keep Justin on his A-game.

Producers Luana Bussolo and Russell M Wieland team up with Director Scott J. Strasbaugh to bring the usual high standards of the Little Theatre to bear in this romp across the greens.  A small cast deftly keeps the pace going and handles the “combat” scenes and slapstick with abandon.  Raeanna Nicole Larson, Ken Kemp, Patricia Nicklin, and Brendan Chaney and Lorrain Bouchard round out the cast of veteran actors.

Great dramas and classics are meant to be analyzed.  A light comedy like this is meant to be enjoyed with a cocktail and belly laugh.  Drop your clubs in the trunk, and head over to the Little Theatre.  After all, it’s just a game, isn’t it?  Through June 29. Tickets at www.littletheatre.com
