Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple.

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The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

Originally a Broadway and West End play and then a film starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, Neil Simon updated his contemporary classic in the '80s with the twist that the Odd Couple were female.

Meeting in Olive Madison's messy New York apartment a group of woman friends play their regular game of Trivial Pursuit. When one of their number, the neurotic Florence Unger leaves her husband and moves in, things become difficult.

Within days, Florence's obsessive habits start taking their toll on Olive and their friends. The only remedy Olive can think of, a pair of brothers from Barcelona, disastrously backfires, and the two women are forced to agree on one thing - even the best of friends sometimes make the worst of roommates.
