Queensland Theater Company is set to get seriously funny this month as they stage the classic comedy, The Odd Couple.
Suddenly single after his wife throws him out on the street, despairing journalist Felix reluctantly accepts the hospitality of his buddy Oscar, a sportswriter and Grade A slob.
Oscar痴 sprawling apartment on Manhattan痴 Upper West Side would once have been palatial ・but after his own recent divorce, he lives in the midst of an ever-growing midden of domestic detritus. A big spender, a problem gambler, a hedonist, a boozer and a rake, he痴 everything the neurotically neat and fastidious Felix is not. They池e the best of pals, but living together is proving a bit of a stretch.
A classic comedy from Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony Award-winning American playwright and screenwriter Neil Simon, The Odd Couple re-teams the odd couple from 2013痴 Design For Living, Jason Klarwein and Tama Matheson, as the housemates from hell.
Director Wesley Enoch recreates the magic and chaos of the beloved 1968 film starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.
The Odd Coupe will be staged 17 Oct ・8 Nov at the Playhouse, QPAC. Tickets are available now via www.queenslandtheatre.com.au or call 136246.
