The Odd Couple (Female Version)


Neil Simon

Directed by: Jean Cox

Oct 10th, 13th - 17th Oct 1992

In this hilarious female version of The Odd Couple, Olive Madison, like her original male counterpart, is divorced and living in cheerful chaos in her New York appartment. At Olive's invitation the suicidal Florence Ungar, newly separated from her husband, moves in and is soon finding comfort in cooking, cleaning and fussing, until Olive is almost reduced to a nervous wreck. It becomes clear that the patterns of their disastrous marriages are already reoccurring.
