The Odd Couple
Play by Neil Simon
CPR’s fall presentation in September/October will be everyone’s favorite comedy, Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple! The original Broadway production gained Tony Awards for Walter Matthau (Best Actor), Best Author, Best Direction of a Play, Best Scenic Design, and was nominated for Best Play. This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced slob Oscar Madison. If the mess we see is any indication of how he lives, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is neat-nick, Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too 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.
