In 1985 Neil Simon set out to update his popular play, The Odd Couple – with a twist! The resulting female version of his classic is more of a comedic masterpiece than the original. Actors from Toledo School for the Arts are set to keep audiences laughing December 12-15 at Toledo Repertoire’s 10th Street Theater.

The story follows two roommates, Olive Madison and Florence Unger, two recent divorcees who decide to try living together despite their drastically differing personalities. Olive’s easy-going and messy lifestyle soon clashes with Florence’s high-strung, neat-as-a-pin habits. Throw in a double date with the Costazuela brothers, and their friendship is pushed to its limits.

Juliette Morgan Quinlan, the director of the production, said, "The Odd Couple is such a funny exploration and a celebration of the things that make every human being different, but also make every different being human.”

TSA’s production will feature Emily Gerome as Olive and Lily Rutledge as Florence. The production is directed by TSA Theatre Instructor, Juliette Morgan Quinlan with set design by Zann Campbell-Johannes and costumes by Angie Patchett. Performances are Thursday-Saturday, December 12-14 at 7pm and Sunday, December 15 at 2:30pm. Tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for students and seniors and are available at the TSA box office by calling 419-246-8732 x226 or by visiting the TSA website
