“The Odd Couple” is a comedy that chronicles the unconventional relationship between friends turned roommates, Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar. Throughout the course of the play, slovenly Oscar and fastidious Felix rub each other the wrong way, leading to hilarious outcomes. Their friends mean well but also provide comic relief during their poker games. This original play spawned two different television shows featuring the same characters, as well as movies and an all-female version of the play.
