The Odd Couple – Iowa State University Theatre

by Neil Simon

“Don’t point that finger at me unless you intend to use it.”

This play asks the question, “Can two divorced men, one a neurotic neat freak and one a messy sportswriter, share an apartment without driving each other crazy?”  The answer, of course, is “No!” Playwright Neil Simon has a special genius for finding great humor in ordinary people doing ordinary things and this is one of his most enduring scripts.  Winner of a the Tony Award for Best New Play.
