In this female buddy play, Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of "The Odd Couple." Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Drama Dock Presents: “The Odd Couple.” Directed by Chaim Rosemarin and Produced by Trudy Rosemarin. The cast includes: Cate O’Kane, Dedra Dakota, Bonny Moss, Chai Ste. Marie, Thea Vernoy, Sue DeNies, James Norton, and Russell Baker.
