Everyman Theatre Cork: Last Chance For ‘The Odd Couple”

The Odd Couple (Female Version)

DATE AND TIME | UNTIL SAT 17 AUG, 7.30PM

PRICE | €33 | CONCESSION €30 | STUDENTS €9 | OPENING WEEK €26

The Everyman’s production of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, is a perfect summer night out, and it must finish this Saturday, August 17.  Since it opened in July, audiences have been delighting in the quick witted, laugh a minute, humour. This production is a fresh look at a familiar set-up, and TV shows like Friends owe a huge debt to Simon’s comic genius.

The lead characters have been transformed into Olive and Florence. Olive, and her group of girlfriends, are enjoying their weekly game of Trivial Pursuit in Olive’s messy, and ill-equipped, Upper East Side apartment. Her old friend, Florence, arrives fresh from being dumped by her husband.

Fearful that the neurotic Florence might harm herself, Olive invites her to move in. Olive’s easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s highly-strung, neurotic tendencies, testing the friendship to the limit. When Olive organises a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head, and sparks fly.

Starring Nichola MacEvilly as Florence and Gillian McCarthy as Olive, directed by Conor Hanratty, it also features Noni Stapleton as Mickey, Gene Rooney as Vera, Camille Ross as Sylvie, Éadaoin O’Donoghue as Renee, Ray Scannell as Manolo, and Kevin Creedon as Jesus, with set and costumes by Maree Kearns, and lighting design by Kevin Smith. 

Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple at The Everyman continues until this Saturday, August 17, nightly at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at €33 and students are €9.
