The Play

Neil Simon, America’s best known multi-award winning playwright, excels in presenting the frustrations and vagaries of life with delicious humour. His comic concoction RUMORS is based on a dinner party where four snazzily-dressed couples gather at the home of Charlie and Myra Brock to celebrate the tenth wedding anniversary of their hosts.
But Charlie is lying upstairs with a bullet hole in his ear lobe, and
Myra is nowhere to be seen.
We are pitched headlong into high-voltage hilarity as the friends try frantically to protect their host (who is deputy mayor of
New York), and themselves, by hiding the evening’s events from the outside world.
As Clive Barnes of the
New York Post wrote: “Broadway has something to cheer about again. This maze of mendacity is light, frothy and fun!”
Currently negotiating the maze in rehearsal are Damian Mead, Aleathea Monsour, Katy Forde, Luke Monsour, Trish Carroll, Jeremy West, Fiona Kennedy, Dan Kennedy, Barry de Sylva and Kate Clark. David Jones is stage manager, and the set is being magicked into reality by Rod Thompson, Heinz Brunner and Barry de Sylva.
