THE ODD COUPLE (FEMALE VERSION)
Blackwood Players Inc
Blackwood 21 (Blackwood Memorial Hall)
Written By: Neil Simon
Directed By: Stephanie Gonelli
Two mismatched roommates, Unger and Madison, are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Join the girls for a game of Trivial Pursuit and watch the comedy unfold.
Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple is well known. The 1965 stage show, was created into a movie in 1968, a TV series in the 70's, cartoon, reboot series, sequal movie and most recently another 3 season reboot in 2014.
The Odd Couple (Female Version), sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband.
Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit. When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.
