A Comedy by Neil Simon
Directed by Sondra Learn
It’s the famous Odd Couple of Felix and Oscar recreated by the author in a totally hilarious female version. Since its first Broadway appearance in 1985 it’s had audiences falling about with laughter in countless professional and community theatres all over the world.
Come and meet Florence and Olive trying to share an apartment as totally opposite personalities; compulsively neat and tidy Florence and incurably mess-indifferent Olive turn each other’s lives into one crisis after another. When the girls get together for an evening of Trivial Pursuit with a bevy of friends, and the helpful neighbours, the brothers Costazuela, get involved, the hilarity explodes.
Will everything work out for them all? If you know your Neil Simon, you’ll know the outcome will be quintessential American theatre.
“Very funny, indeed” reported the New York Post, and USA Today calls it “Endearing”
