Character Breakdown for “The Fox on the Fairway”:
HENRY BINGHAM (40+): Director of the Quail Valley Country Club. He is witty and cynical at times, much like Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers (John Cleese). He gets into a high-stakes bet on a golf tournament and is determined to do what it takes to win. He is unhappy in his marriage to Muriel, but has a long-time, unrequited attraction to Pamela.
JUSTIN HICKS (20s): Bingham’s new eager-to-please assistant who volunteers his services as a talented golfer to help Quail Valley win the golf tournament. He is romantically involved with Louise and proposes to her early on, but becomes emotionally distraught when things become difficult between them.
DICKIE BELL (40+): The director of the rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club, with whom Bingham gets into a high-stakes bet. He is a bit obnoxious, including his fashion sense, but tries to come off as good-natured. He is the philandering ex-husband of Pamela, but has a thing for Bingham’s wife, Muriel.
PAMELA PEABODY (35-50s): A member of the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive and sophisticated, but a bit loose and a quite a drinker. Throughout the play she aids Bingham in his plans to make sure their club wins. She is venomous toward Dickie Bell, her philandering ex-husband.
LOUISE HEINDBEDDER (20s): A waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive, and a bit flighty, but studious (especially in classic literature). She gets engaged to Justin early on, but a mishap results in her becoming very upset over their future together, making her bawl at a moment’s notice.
MURIEL BINGHAM (40+): Bingham’s wife, who runs an antique shop, which becomes part of the bet between Henry and Dickie. Generally overbearing and stern, she somehow has a soft spot for Dickie.
