Islamabad: United States Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has said that the relationship between the US and Pakistan bears resemblance with that of Scar and Felix, the two protagonists of Neil Simson’s 1965 play ‘The Old Couple’, which he launched here at the Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA).
The collaborative American and Pakistani production of the play will remain open to the public till July 17.
“We sometimes see the world in different ways, but as Oscar and Felix discover, and as I believe is true for our bilateral relationship, that even while we at times pass through rough patches, we can find a way to live together, to support each other, and to prosper,” The Nation quoted Munter, as saying.
The play ‘The Odd Couple’ ventures a story that revolves around two very good friends with very different personalities, Oscar and Felix.
They decide to share a New York apartment. This situation makes for an enduring and endearing comedy, and a classic work of the American stage.
The play was also produced in a Hollywood flick and long-running US TV series.
