SHOW: Dead Givaway
By Pat Cook

STORY: "If there's any skeletons in the closet, I'll find them!" states Angie, who then opens a closet and has a skeleton literally fly in her face. This is one of the many surprises that faces the undercover police woman who just took on a job as a "domestic engineer," hired by Dr. Hugh Bernard to "find out what's going on." Five elderly spinsters live in the same house and all apparently, hate each other. And what a group. There's Evelyn, who keeps acting out death scenes for Fiona, who's writing some sort of novel. Then there's Catherine, who keeps alluding to her "garden." And Beryl, who carries a pistol and has really hired Angie, unbeknownst to the doctor. And finally, there's Dinah a senior citizen Hell's Angel.
What keeps these women together? And what dark secret are they all hiding? And why do they keep Dying? Find out in this comedy chiller, where you are not sure who or what to believe, who is really murdering who. And finally, what really happened to Jinx the cat?

Winner! 1965 Tony Award, Best Author of a Play
Nominee! 1965 Tony Award, Best Play

This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys play poker in the messy apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob decide to share a living space, as THE ODD COUPLE is formed!

Cast of Characters:
Roles: 6 men & 2 women

Oscar Madison: A slovenly, recently divorced sportswriter.
Felix Unger: A fastidious, hypochondriac news writer for CBS whose marriage is ending.
Murray: An NYPD policeman, one of Oscar and Felix's poker buddies.
Speed: One of the poker buddies. Gruff and sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie and Murray.
Vinnie: One of the poker buddies. Vinnie is mild-mannered and henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed's verbal barbs.
Roy: One of the poker buddies. Oscar's accountant. Roy has a dry wit but is less acerbic than Speed.
Cecily and Gwendolyn Pigeon: Oscar and Felix's upstairs neighbors, a pair of giggly, dizzy British sisters. The former is a divorcée, the latter a widow.
