Auditions 2022

The Odd Couple

By Neil Simon; Directed by Stewart Grant
Performance: October 10th – 15th, 2022
Casting Date: July 20th 2022 at 19:30 in the Theatre

Following its premiere on Broadway in 1965, the characters were revived in a successful 1968 film starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. In the 1970s it also became a popular television series. The plot concerns two mismatched roommates. With his marriage breaking down, the neat, uptight Felix Ungar moves in with the divorced, slovenly, easygoing Oscar Madison. Neil Simon uses the differences between the unlikely roommates to create some great comedy especially when two sisters move in upstairs.

Cast Required

  • Felix Ungar (A fastidious, hypochondriac news-writer whose marriage is ending)
  • Oscar Madison (A slovenly, recently divorced sportswriter)
  • Murray (A NYPD policeman, one of Felix and Oscar’s poker buddies)
  • Speed (One of the poker buddies. Gruff and sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie and Murray)
  • Vinnie (One of the poker buddies. Vinnie is mild-mannered and henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed’s verbal barbs)
  • Roy (One of the poker buddies. Oscar’s accountant. Roy has a dry wit but is less acerbic than Speed)
  • Cecily and Gwendolyn Pigeon (Felix and Oscar’s giggly upstairs neighbours, a pair of English sisters. The former a divorcée, the latter a widow)
