Twenty years after writing his classic The Odd Couple, Neil Simon reimagined the script for a female cast.

The lead characters are Florence Unger and Olive Madison, played by Kathleen Somssich and Genevieve Aichele, respectively.

The fun begins with a girls night game of Trivial Pursuit instead of poker.

Performances will be held Friday through Jan. 28 with showtimes Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at the West End Studio Theatre, 959 Islington St., Portsmouth.

Tickets are $28 or $24 for students and seniors. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit nhtheatreproject.org or call 431-6644, ext. 5.
