Market House Theatre Opens the Year with New Farce

Jan 16, 2014

Paducah's Market House Theatre opens 'The Fox on the Fairway' tonight (January 16). It's a tribute to golf and to the great English farces of the 1930's and 40's. Playwright Ken Ludwig said in a 2010 interview that the play is "really about love - and the joys and angst and craziness of love - in two different eras of our life." Kate Lochte speaks with Market House Director Michael Cochran, who is directing the production that runs through January 26. 

"Frankly, my dear, this is one funny play…a rip-roaring farce…[with] witty, pointed dialogue and hilarious situations…" —NY Daily News.

Dr. Kenneth Tucker, professor emeritus of Murray State University's department of English and philosophy, has added another novel to his list of published titles. Hell is Where the Heart Is, which Tucker describes as an unabashed farce about behind-the-scenes events at a state university, is now available to the public. He spoke with Tracy Ross about the book, now available in paperback, on Sounds Good. Click here to purchase the book on Amazon.
