“The Odd Couple (Female Version)” approaches Neil Simon’s most famous and renowned comedy from a different perspective as the ladies — messy Olive and neat-freak Florence — take over the juicy roles of the famously mismatched male couple, Felix and Oscar.
“The Odd Couple (Female Version)” premiered on Broadway in 1986 starring Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno in the lead roles.
The Pewter Plough Playhouse production is directed by Viv Goff and features Sharyn Young and Janice Peters in the lead roles, with Jo Jackson, Roxanne Brodnick, Anita Schwaber, Stacy Delaney, Dave Manion and Don Dallmann supporting.
