Rumours – Arts Center of Coastal Carolina – February 2020
In Neil Simon’s classic farce Rumors – the top three People’s Choice for a play — four couples arrive at the 10th-anniversary celebration party for New York’s deputy mayor and his wife, only to find the mayor with a gunshot wound and the wife totally missing. The madcap antics are set in Palisades at a dinner party that goes topsy-turvy from beginning to end.
The deputy mayor’s lawyer, Ken, and his wife must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. The dinner turkey hasn’t even seen the oven yet.
As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farce hilarity.
Simon’s enjoyable romp is one of his most celebrated comedies. During its Broadway run the show received Tony and Drama Desk nominations. Called “straight-up funny” and the “perfect antidote to reality.”
