“The Odd Couple” – 18th to 23rd June 2018

Florence Unger and Olive Madison are at it again, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Costazuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

The female version of The Odd Couple was first presented on Broadway by Emanuel Azenberg, Wayne M. Rogers, and The Shubert Organization at the Broadhurst Theatre on June 11, 1985. It was directed by Gene Saks.

Neil Simon was awarded the Tony Award for Best Author of a Play in 1965 for the original version of The Old Couple, which itself was also nominated in the same year for the Tony Award for Best Play.

This amateur production of “The Odd Couple” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD (Subject to Licence)
