The Odd Couple
A comedic ode to chums of conflicting temperaments, Neil Simon’s Tony Award-winning The Odd Couple has split sides around the world since its premiere in 1965. The comedy’s plot revolves around the lives of two mismatched friends—one, a muddled and lovable curmudgeon, and the other, a finicky, fastidious professional whose marriage is ending. After deciding to live together, the trouble starts in earnest: one chafes at the other’s less-than-stellar cleaning habits, while the neatnik’s depressed state and mounting stress levels could drive any roommate up the walls. The memorable characters, whip-quick dialogue, and consistent chuckles have made the play a favorite of theaters since its premiere, spawning the classic 1968 film as well as an ABC sitcom and several adaptations.
One of those adaptations was made by Simon himself. While the original Odd Couple focuses on Felix and Oscar, the playwright created a parallel script for a female cast (switching in Olive for Oscar and Florence for Felix). With this run, Harbor Playhouse gives audiences a chance to see both versions—two rotating casts switch places throughout the run, proving that gender has nothing to do with being a bad roommate, or a great friend.
