THE ODD COUPLE
Directed by Trevor Kastein
Produced by Ron Wilkie and Beth Jewell.
This classic comedy play opens as a group of guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Depressed and tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
Oscar Madison: Oscar is a recently divorced sportswriter and living on his own. He is a slob and untidy with little care for tending to his surroundings, which is a large and very nice 8 room apartment in the upper "eighties" of New York. He has relaxed into his environment, and hosts rowdy poker nights and is generous with his apartment and with his friends.
Felix Unger: A hypochondriac news writer for CBS whose marriage is ending. Felix is well dressed, loves to spend time in the kitchen, everything has its place, the kind of person who would run around cleaning ashtrays after each cigarette. He’s also very emotional with a list of maladies: sinus problems, back problems, emotional problem, etc. Since he is having significant marital problems Oscar has invited him to live with him for a while until he gets things sorted out, but their relationship is oil and water, a volatile mix.
