Many of you have probably seen the original production of The Odd Couple by Neil Simon and may even have seen our production which we staged in 2003. This later female version follows a similiar story line and is equally hilarious.

Instead of the all male poker evening, the girls are playing Trivial Pursuit and the appearance of the Pidgeon sisters is replaced by two Spanish brothers.

The Odd Couple is best known for the 1968 film starring Walter Matthau as Oscar and Jack Lemon as Felix. This was based on Neil Simon's 1966 hit Broadway production; his later female production was first staged in the 1970s starring Rita Moreno and Sally Struthers
