Felix Ungar is holding on to life by his fingertips, his wife has thrown him out, and to top it all he’s missing the Friday night poker game cos he’s roaming the streets of New York with nowhere to go and no future. Step in unlikely guardian angel, Oscar Madison. Oscar thinks nothing of stubbing out his cigar in the meatballs or leaving the laundry to fester under the sofa. To say he’s a slob is an insult to slobs. He offers sanctuary to Felix, who includes clean napkins, coasters and vacuuming in his spare time among his favourite things. A combustible combination? This could be the end of a beautiful friendship!
Melting Pot Theatre Company presents ‘The Odd Couple’ by Neil Simon. Melting Pot has been on the theatrical scene in Worcester since 2002, presenting outdoor productions in venues such as The Commandery and Greyfriars, and inside we have taken our shows to The Worcester Arts Workshop and The ArtHouse Cafe, and on tour to, amongst others, the back garden of The Dirty Duck in Stratford, where we cheekily presented our 7 cast Hamlet to much acclaim! This is our first time at the Coach House in Malvern and we are very much looking forward to having fun here!
The first night, proceeds go to St Richards Hospice.
