The Odd Couple MAINSTAGE THEATRE

Odd-Couple-500-Gretchen.jpg

PLAY SYNOPSIS: This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

STUDIO
THEATRE

October 27th & 28th

We have multiple scripts involving family dynamics, love and hate, cooking in the kitchen and beyond, dark humor, persuasive arguments, arts and crafts, and downright boredom. Our usual offerings are humorous and/or tongue in cheek. This time we are highlighting personal relationships. Trust or lack of it colors some of the material. Other times, it's people trying to put one over on someone or foist guilt on a family member... Psychology 101 anyone?

Please note that WRCT Director's Showcase one-act plays in the Studio Theatre are more edgy than traditional Mainstage Theatre productions.

THE STORY:

Mrs. Johnson is a high school English teacher and guidance counselor in a loving marriage. As she recounts her experiences with a favored student from her past, Mrs. Johnson slowly reveals the truth that is hidden just beneath the surface details of her life.

ALL THE WAYS TO SAY I LOVE YOU is a solo play about love, hard choices, and the cost of fulfilling an all-consuming desire.

Directors are needed at the helm of every show. We support directors to choose their own material and encourage submissions to our 

MainStage season.
