The Female Version

Directed by: Monica Chitkara

Neil Simon’s revision of his highly successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into two women. In our adaptation, Geeta is enjoying her weekly game-night with her friends. As the game continues, Suman arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Suman might attempt suicide, Geeta invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Geeta and Suman have very different personalities. Comedy arises when their friendship is tested to the limit.

Cast: Neha Goyal, Pratiksha Rao-Vaidya, Anitha Dixit, Shruti Chugh, Anjali Bhide, Vikram Ramanarayanan, Poulomi Sarkar and Anshul Samar.
