That person could be a friend, a stranger, or a relative sent to make life easier, provide a little company, and maybe save a few dollars. With characteristics such as messy, picky, pristine, and easygoing, the roommate can indeed ease the worries of life or become a worry themselves. Acclaimed playwright Neil Simon humorously explores this dynamic in the Tony award-winning play about polar opposites who co-exist in the same apartment, ‘The Odd Couple.’
Bay Players of Duxbury proudly present Neil Simon’s classic comedy, ‘The Odd Couple’ from Friday, March 21, Saturday, March 22, Friday, March 28, and Saturday, March 29 at First Parish Church 842 Tremont Street (Rte. 3a) in Duxbury, Massachusetts at 8 p.m. Directed by Philip M. Markella, see the hilarious antics of mismatched roommates Felix Unger and Oscar Madison, whose lives are thrown together due to unforeseen circumstances.
