WORLD PREMIERE! Long before Felix met Oscar, Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin were ill-fitting roommates in the south of France; a fateful co-habitation that would change the face of art - and Van Gogh's face, too. It's a lesser-known tidbit of theatre history that these two masters were also the subjects of Neil Simon's original draft of "The Odd Couple." Sacred Fools now presents the first-ever performance of this abandoned script, and the odd tale of how it was written.

Performing in the Broadwater Black Box (Entrance at 6322 Santa Monica Blvd.)
