Archives - The Odd Couple (The Female Version)

by Neil Simon

Directed by Keith Thompson

Saturday 19th – Saturday 26th September 1992 in the Auditorium

This is the revised version of Simon’s original play with the sexes reversed. Instead of Oscar the slob and Felix the martinet trying to live in the same apartment, we have Olive the slut and Florence the histrionic going through the same experience. The four male friends, the poker players, are replaced in this version by four ladies (!) with a hilarious game of Trivial Pursuit. The love interest from upstairs, once the Pidgeon sisters, is now two Spanish brothers.

Same plot, great parts, different dialogue… hilarious results
