Neil Simon’s revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities. Where Olive is messy, untidy, and unconcerned about the state of her apartment, Florence is obsessively clean, tidy, and obsessed with hygiene. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung neurotic tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit.
When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.
Olive Madison (Lead) Female 20+ a successful television producer; she is intelligent, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor, and she’s a complete slob; she has an encyclopedic understanding of sports.
Florence (Flo) Unger (Lead) Female 20+ very well-groomed, and neat; has just broken up with her husband; she takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate, and cook; she is intelligent and warm-hearted, but has no
sense of humor (at least about herself).
Sylvie (supporting) Female 18+ desperately trying to stop smoking, and so sucks on lollipops or chews gum; she can get irritated with her friends, but has a good sense of humor, especially about her husband; and, yes, she is pregnant in the last scene.
Renee (supporting) Female 18+ Sylvie’s best friend, can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive’s failings as a hostess–and then Flo’s; she is single and dating a doctor.
Vera (supporting) Female 18+ very sweet, very nice, somewhat spacey, and, although quite smart, is often a step or two behind her friends; she’s very funny, but doesn’t realize it.
Mickey (supporting) Female 18+ a police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain-talking, and has a good understanding of people; she tries very hard to be in control of all situations.
Manolo Costazuela (supporting) Male 18+ handsome, very well-groomed, and Spanish with a Castilian accent; he is every woman’s dream date and showers both Olive and Flo with attention; he must have good comic timing, as he gets very emotional; he is sensitive and appreciates Florence’s sensitivity.
Jesus Costazuela (supporting) Male 18+ sensitive emotional spanish accent passionate boyish brother romantic
