Synopsis. New York, summer of 1968. The divorced Óscar Madison, a perfect mess, party animal, partygoer and used to subsisting in chaos, opens the doors of his home to Félix Ungar, his best friend, depressed at having been abandoned by his wife, tired of her hypochondria and her mania for cleanliness and order.
Although the expectations of coexistence are promising, as the days go by, the opposite and incompatible personalities wreak havoc on that relationship. Only the Friday poker games with their friends or the desire to go out with the two attractive sisters who live in the same building, take them out of the routine. Both are a calamity in their own way, and although they complement each other, they cannot stand each other. A sample of human relationships, need, loneliness, understanding, support and, above all, conflicts, many conflicts.
This mythical theater piece will lead us to another dilemma: With which of the two do you identify, Oscar or Felix? «
