The Odd Couple - Neil Simon 1966 - Random House, New York - First edition, first printing Neil’s successful Broadway play, which premiered in 1965. The plot concerns two mismatched roommates: the neat, uptight Felix Ungar and the slovenly, easygoing Oscar Madison. Walter Matthau starred as Oscar Madison, and went on to play the same part in the film adaptation in 1968 together with Jack Lemmon as Felix.

Simon adapted the play in 1985 to feature a pair of female roommates (Florence Ungar and Olive Madison) in
The Female Odd Couple. In 2002 he wrote an updated version Oscar and Felix: A New Look at the Odd Couple, which was performed on Broadway with Matthew Broderick playing Felix.

In addition to the film and theatre,
The Odd Couple has been the basis of a number of successful sitcoms, notably the ABC sitcoms The Odd Couple (1970-75) and The New Odd Couple (1982-3). A new series of The Odd Couple is scheduled to begin on CBS in September 2014 starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon.
