Shuswap Theatre presents Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, starring Fred Green as fussy Felix Ungar and George Rithaler as messy Oscar Madison.
Inconsolable after his wife throws him out, the neurotic, annoying hypochondriac Felix has nowhere to go and turns to his pal Oscar – a recently-divorced slob.
Life changes dramatically when Felix moves in, to hilarious effect. How can two distinctly different men live together without killing each other?
This black comedy situated in New York City became the biggest grossing film in 1968, pulling in over $44.5 million.
The Shuswap Theatre version is directed by Julia Body and produced by Kathy Moore, with a cast that includes Randy Brogden, Mike Nash, Peter Molnar, Randy Piccini, Michelle La Grange Holmes and Helen Wall.
