Two divorced men decide to share a New York apartment. That’s the premise of The Odd Couple by evam……
Felix and Oscar are an extremely odd couple: Felix is neurotic, precise, and fastidiously clean. Oscar, on the other hand, is the exact opposite: sloppy and casual. What happens when the two friends are forced to share an apartment, and their differing lifestyles inevitably lead to conflicts- a full laugh riot for the audiences. Add to that their Saturday night poker gang friends: Vinnie- the dutiful husband, Murray- the cop, Roy-Oscar’s accountant and the sarcastic Speed , and the possibility of a date with the Cuckoo Pigeon sisters who live in the same apartment- you’ve got a chaotic entertainer for sure!
This Neil Simon situational comedy on one hand is about two opposite people (out of their marriages) deciding to stay together and the chaos and humour which is generated as a result, while on the other hand the story is about friendship, and loneliness — it gives us a glimpse into what makes us cling on to our friends even when they are so opposite to us and can drive us over the wall with their antics — the uncanny bond, which makes friendship such an odd-even relationship! Somewhere it also touches about how easy it is to lose people and how difficult to stay on and make things work — and sometimes you don’t get a choice at all!
A perfect Stress Buster for THE AUDIENCE-hilarious fun!

Their timing was perfect and they played with changing the pace, with pauses, with sulks and silences. they presented an interesting variety, a group made up of very different individuals…
