At a large, tastefully-appointed townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York, while preparing to host a tenth anniversary party for himself and his wife, has just shot himself!
When his lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris arrive, the host lies bleeding in a bedroom while his wife is nowhere in sight. Though it’s only a flesh wound, Ken and Chris must get “the story” straight to protect the Deputy Mayor’s reputation before the other three couples arrive. The result is a hilarious build-up of lies, cover stories, miscommunications, rumors and zany explanations that will make audience members laugh out loud during this fast-paced comedy. If you like the humor of T.V. shows such as Fawlty Towers, Three’s Company or Frasier, you will love Rumors – a classic farce by the one and only Neil Simon.
