According to the play summary, “Florence is a neurotic neat freak. Olive is a funloving slob. Recently divorced from their husbands, they become roommates and start driving each other crazy. Enjoy the laughs as Florence and Olive play games, do battle and court the Costazuela brothers.

“Neil Simon himself updated his classic Tony-winning comedy with a decidedly modern female twist.”

Roxboro Little Theater’s production of The Odd Couple is being directed by Fred Motley.

“For myself and many others there’s nothing more joyous on a cold winter evening than watching a funny play in a theater,” said Motley. “This show is filled with witty humor that produces laughter and reaffirms that spending times with friends as an audience member or watching friends spending time on stage is a wonderful experience.

He continued, “The ensemble cast of seasoned and new area actors brings a freshness to the Kirby stage with this production. Attending the show will be a great way to warm the winter blues.”

Tickets are available online at www.kirbytheater.com, or by calling 336-597-1709.

The Kirby Theater is located at 213 N. Main St. in Roxboro.
