Can two divorced men live together, peacefully and serenely in a small New York City apartment? When the two men are Felix Unger and Oscar Madison, the answer is a resounding NO! Oscar is a hard living, hard drinking, divorced sportswriter, and a carefree slob with a messy apartment, a broken refrigerator, and wall to wall debris. Felix is unfailingly neat, financially frugal, and something of a hypochondriac. Their close friendship is put to the ultimate stress-test when Felix moves in with Oscar and immediately their personalities clash. It's one zany event after another which comes to an ultimate hilarious, exploding conclusion when our boys double date with the Pigeon sisters. Hysteria is the result.

Character Descriptions: 6 Males & 2 Females

Oscar Madison: (30's - 50's) A sloppy, recently divorced sportswriter.

Felix Unger: (30's - 50's) A fastidious, hypochondriac news writer whose marriage is ending; emotional and dramatic.

Speed: (30's - 50's) A poker buddy, gruff and sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie and Murray.

Vinnie: (30's - 50's) A poker buddy, mild-mannered and hen-pecked, an easy target for Speed's verbal barbs.

Murray: (30's - 50's) A cop and one of the poker buddies.

Roy: (30's - 50's) A poker buddy with a dry wit and Oscar's accountant.

Cecily Pigeon: (30's - 40's) A British neighbor of Oscar's; lives with her sister Gwen. Needs a British accent.

Gwendolyn Pigeon: (30's - 40's) A British neighbor of Oscar's; lives with her sister Cecily. Needs a British accent.

Please bring a resume, a headshot and a list of all conflicts for May 3rd to August 7th.
