Think You've Seen Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple"? Act One Presents the Female Version!

Join Clairemont Act One (CAO), your community theatre group for their spring production of "The Odd Couple", as re-imagined for women by Neil Simon and performed by an all-female cast!

In this version of the well-loved “opposites attract” comedy, fastidious housewife Florence Unger and sloppy sports show producer Olive Madison are great friends—but terrible roommates.

What begins with a game of Trivial Pursuit soon becomes a fierce battle of wills when Olive offers Florence a place to stay after her husband kicks her out.  The new roommates start to get along well enough, but before you can say “dust pan,” their different personalities collide and the spaghetti starts flying.

Can Olive’s and Florence’s mutual friends help them patch things up?  Or perhaps the two handsome Spaniards living upstairs will distract them from their woes?  Come see this hilarious play and find out!

Show dates are the first two weekends in May. On Friday, May 1st the show is at 7:30pm and on Saturday May 2nd, there are two shows, at 1pm and again at 7pm.  The next weekend, shows are on Friday, May 8th at 7:30pm and on Saturday the 9th at both 1pm and 7pm.
