Clarkston Village Players open their 2019-2020 season with Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple – Female Version,” presented by Special Arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
In this contemporary classic, Unger and Madison are at it again – Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is.
Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit.
The Pidgeon Sisters have been replaced by the Costazuela Brothers, but the hilarity and shenanigans remain the same.
Directed by Joe Misher, performances will be on Sept. 13-15, 20-22, and 26-28. Ticket hotline is 248-425-5842, or email cvptickets@comcast.net.
