By Neil Simon

If you’ve seen the film with Walter Matthau and Jack Lemon you’ll know what to expect. Neurotic, fastidious and recently separated Florence Unger moves in with her long-time friend, sloppy, untidy wise-cracking Olive Maddison and the sparks begin to fly. The weekly Trivial Pursuits evenings will never be the same – there are now fresh sandwiches to eat and please make sure your drink goes on a coaster. Only the intervention of two handsome Spanish brothers – who barely understand English – can release Olive from the torment of having Florence as a houseguest. Written by the genius of film and stage, Neil Simon, it is full of sparkling dialogue and will have the audience in stitches.

Unusually, there is a cast of six women and two men, so brush up your New York accents and come along to the audition.

All welcome. Rehearsals begin in early May.
