The Odd Couple

5 May 2023 at 7.30 pm - 9.00 pm

$19 – $27

Roleystone Theatre Inc. presents the hilarious The Odd Couple – The Female Version.

Olive has always been lazy and messy. Florence has always been a neat-freak… And now the Slob and the Snob have to live together?

The classic play, also known as a movie and TV series, has been flipped, starring a female cast of characters sure to tickle your funny bone with their journey through friendship and ‘dis’harmony!

Directed by Simon James
Roleystone Theatre Inc. is a not for profit community theatre group.

The Story:
Olive is a successful sports reporter, who lives in a very messy apartment. Her laziness is legendary and she will take any short-cut to cleanliness she can, but most times manages to avoid it altogether. If she drops any food on the floor it’s not so much the “five second rule” as the “five day rule”!

Her best friend Florence is a rather uptight shop-a-holic who indulges herself with her hubby’s credit cards and lives in a ‘sparkly’ world. She is an absolute stickler for neatness and hygiene, and cannot abide dirt, dust or disorder. When Florence’s marriage suddenly collapses, along with her whole world, she doesn’t know what to do or where to go. So, she reluctantly accepts her best friend’s offer of support and one to live together until she gets back on her feet. Can The Neat Freak live with the Slob?

Their circle of female friends, who meet up every week for their ritual Trivial Pursuit Night, have their own thoughts on how this arrangement is going to pan out, as well as having their own things happening in their lives that affect the group dynamic.

And… there’s there the two cheeky Spanish brothers living upstairs, who bring their own chaos into the lives of Olive and Florence. What ensues is a classic Neil Simon comedy of sharp one-liners, sarcasm, wit and laughable capers, as well as some real human emotion and insight thrown in, too.

Performances will be presented at the Don Russell Performing Arts Centre in Thornlie on 28 and 29 April and 4, 5 and 6 May 2023.

Proudly supported by City of Armadale.
