The Odd Couple

3 to 13 March 2004

Neil Simon's famous update of this contemporary classic starts with a group of women friends playing their regular game of Trivial Pursuit. This week, they're meeting at the apartment of Olive Madison, a divorcee who freely admits to being a slob. "I leave a mess when I read a book." Late to arrive is Forence Unger, a stickler for detail who would try the patience of a saint who has just unfortunately become separated from her husband. As life would have it, the slob and the fussy one decide to room together - with hilarious results.
