The Classic American Comedy
‘The Owl and the Pussycat’
By Bill Manhoff
A comedy hit on Broadway in the 1960’s with Alan Alda and Diana Sands, ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ was also made in to a hugely successful film starring Barbara Streisand and George Segal.
The play is about two unlikely neighbours. Doris is a part-time prostitute but wants everyone to think she is a talented model and actress. Felix works in a book shop but wants everyone to think he is a talented writer. Both have identity issues and through the course of the play they start to discover who they really are. ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ is a heart-warming comedy about unexpected love and the attraction of opposites.
Age Guidance: 13+
