Maitland Repertory Theatre Presents ‘Rumours’ by Neil Simon
At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. As their tenth wedding anniversary party commences, Ken lies bleeding in another room and his wife Chris is nowhere to be seen.
Though it’s only a flesh wound, Ken Gorman’s self-inflicted injury sets off a series of events causing four couples to experience a severe attack of “Farce”. Chris and their lawyer, Ken, scramble to get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. Doors slam and hilarity abounds as the couples get more and more crazed.
As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical entertainment.
