‘The Odd Couple’, Olive Madison and Florence Unger, along with their friends and the two Spanish Costazuela brothers, arrive at the Blackmore Theatre for next week’s hilarious play written by Neil Simon, from Monday, June 18 to Saturday, June 23.

Evening performances commence at 7.30pm and the Saturday matinee performance starts at 2.30pm, writes Trevor Brice.

Olive and her group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. Florence arrives late, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt something she and the girls might all learn to regret, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate.

What then happens – you will need to book to find out. These two have completely different personalities. Hygiene means nothing to Olive. Florence is completely opposite. She is very much obsessed with everything being clean, tidy and very hygienic. As the play continues, their friendship is tested right to the limit. Olive, very much easy-going, soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies.

The differences between them come to a head when Olive invites the Costazuela brothers, Manalo and Jesus, to her apartment on a double-date. Is this where sparks are about to fly? Book now to find out.

The messy role of Olive is played by Pat Cowey and the role of the obsessively clean and tidy Florence is played by Fin O’Leary. Their girlfriends are Sylvie played by Holly Read, Mickey by Audrey Moore, Renee by Annette Drive and Vera by Juliet Roach.

The Costazeula brothers are played by Mark Blaber (as Manalo) and Martin Moore (as Jesus, but not pronounced as it is spelt).

This amateur production of The Odd Couple is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.
