“dense, wild, painfully funny… a weird, marvelous, and unexpectedly compassionate spectacle… may be the best cast I’ve ever seen in an Oobleck show” Chicago Reader

“savage, inventive and very funny…” Time Out Chicago

“probably the boldest production you’ll see this year” NewCity

“A must-see show… more than once” CenterStage

Theater Oobleck discovers in Oscar Madison’s apartment a magical space to explore such Odd Couples as liberty and tyranny, love and hate, man and superman.

When a time-traveling tourist on a prehistoric safari accidentally kills a butterfly, Oscar and Felix’s poker table becomes the battleground for human civilization.

This world premiere takes Neil Simon’s most famous play into Tom Stoppard territory in an examination of free will in a society where the super-privileged can redesign the fabric of time and space.
