A comedy of half-truths, deception & cover-ups

Neil Simon's Rumors runs October 11 - 21 in the LBCC Studio Theatre, Building H.

The marquee poster for the play, Rumors.

At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

Rumors is directed by Jeff Paul and runs from Oct. 11-14 and Oct. 18-21. Showtimes start at 7:30 pm (Thu, Fri, Sat) and 2:00 pm (Sun). Tickets can be purchased through OvationTix or by calling 866-811-4111.

Parking for the show is free in lots D, E, and F. Synopsis provided by the website, Samuel French.
