THE ODD COUPLE (female version)

by Neil Simon

First performed by the Petuaria Players in 2006 we return to this funny and witty comedy, the female version of the Neil Simon classic. 

Untidy, easy-going Olive in her messy New York apartment is hosting their weekly Trivial Pursuits game with Vera, Mickey, Sylvie & Renee when they start to wonder where their uptight friend Florence is.  They soon find that she and her husband have split up. Would inviting Florence to be Olive’s roommate be a wise move for these mismatched personalities?

Take Away The Lady is another example of the sharp wit and observation of popular writer, Jimmie Chinn. Intriguing glimpses into a cupboard full of family skeletons, together with some serious, and not so serious, detective work, combine in this unusual suspense play, to keep everyone guessing until the very end.

Returning home from prison after serving fifteen years for allegedly murdering his mother, Matthew finds his three sisters, his wife and his father waiting for him.  Still protesting his innocence, Matthew’s arrival prompts the question – “who did kill Mother?”– scornful Celia, dotty Emma, cold Lavinia,  flighty Gilda or even gentle Father? Accusations and hypotheses abound but it takes an apparent suicide and a good deal of amateur sleuthing before the truth is revealed.

Directed by Jayne Hewson
