The Tred Avon Players will present Neil Simon's comedy “The Odd Couple,” opening August 10 and running through August 20 at the Oxford Community Center. The third production in TAP’s 2017 “season of comedy,” the play directed by Ed Langrell. Tickets are available online here:
When fussy Felix (Bob Chauncey) becomes suicidal over his impending divorce, he accepts an offer to move in with his best friend, messy Oscar (Bill Gross). Felix drives Oscar crazy with his obsession over his soon-to-be ex. Oscar tries to get him out of his funk by arranging a double date with two wacky British neighbors, Cecily (Annie Dietz) and Gwendolyn (Lisa Roth). When the plan backfires and Felix grows even more despondent, his friendship with Oscar is put to the test.
Evening performances of “The Odd Couple” are scheduled for Thursday (“Thrifty Thursday,” featuring two-for-one tickets), August 10; Friday, Aug 11; and Saturday, Aug 12, all starting at 7:30 p.m. A Sunday matinee on Aug 13 begins at 2 p.m. The following weekend, evening shows are set for Thursday through Saturday, Aug 17-19, at 7:30 p.m., with the run wrapping on Sunday, August 20, at 2 p.m.
