The Odd Couple
Presented by The Singapore Repertory Theatre
DBS Arts Centre - Home of SRT
28 Jan - 21 Feb 2004
Two of Singapore’s finest actors, Adrian Pang (Hamlet, Barefoot in The Park) and Remesh Panicker (Art, Proof - Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, ST Life! Theatre Awards 2002), come together to take on the legendary comic roles of Oscar and Felix.
After its stage debut in 1965, The Odd Couple was released as a movie in 1967 starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, and has gone on to become a classic, both on stage and on screen.
Newly divorced Oscar Madison, a beer-guzzling, poker-playing sports reporter with limited house-keeping skills, invites his friend Felix Ungar to stay. There’s only one hitch: Felix is a compulsively tidy hypochondriac, whose neurotic ways have found free reign after his wife unexpectedly throws him out.
It’s a mis-match made in heaven for fans of witty dialogue.
