Laugh along with Neil Simon’s flawed flatmates!

Heralded as the biggest hit of Neil Simon’s career, The Odd Couple snatched up several Tony Awards and 964 performances after its 1965 Broadway debut, eventually earning a 1968 film adaptation starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon.

"The ODD COUPLE at EPAC is a Fun Night of Theatre"

Kelli Curtain, Theatre Sensation
TV Commercial

Follow the antics of neurotic newswriter Felix Ungar and slovenly sportswriter Oscar Madison as they test each other’s patience as roommates in a New York apartment. The unlikely duo aggravate – and entertain – as they navigate their way through recent divorces, oft repeating the very same mistakes they made in marriage. Can this mismatched pair share a space without completely driving each other crazy? You’ll just have to watch and find out!

"‘The Odd Couple’ turns 50"

Melissa Hunnefield, The Ephrata Review

EPAC's production will be led by artistic director Timothy Riggs. "For many of us, the story and characters in The Odd Couple are as familiar as our go-to bathrobe or slippers. Yet in the right hands, its humor can feel as fresh as it is familiar,” says Riggs. “I'm eager to bring this beloved story to life and draw out that freshness with some of EPAC's most notable talent!"

With Riggs directing, this classic American comedy will keep audiences laughing from act to act. Enjoy the antics of fickle Felix and aloof Oscar as The Odd Couple takes the stage.
