Margot and Phoebe are roommates and best friends who are as similar as they are different (Some would say that they’re an…odd couple.) Phoebe is a flaky free spirit who feels her emotions deeply and frequently, while Margot is a workaholic who would rather get a root canal than talk about her problems. When Margot’s professional and personal lives begin to teeter, Phoebe sees this as the perfect opportunity to prove she can take care of her best friend… by throwing a girl’s night the same night as Margot’s important work dinner. Dealing with exes, pillow forts, board games, nosebleeds, and cheap wine, the two are forced to navigate not only the most uncomfortable dinner party of their lives, but also their friendship.
WHY SEE THIS SHOW: Do you love rom-coms? Do you love farces? Do you love contemporary shows that take inspiration from one of the greatest comedies of the last 100 years? Great, you’re going to love ODD.
Here we have a romantic comedy farce that is an homage to THE ODD COUPLE from a Gen Z perspective. It has universal themes, but is set today (literally it’s being written as we speak, so it will be as up to the minute as we would like to make it)!
WHO SHOULD SEE THE SHOW: If you are a fan of our classic farces, like LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR, fan of contemporary plays like THE WOLVES or world premieres like KILL CORP, then ODD is for you!
RUN TIME is approximately 1 hour 40 mins including a 15 minute intermission.
