Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts presents: Rumors


America's premier comic playwright, Neil Simon, delights with a laugh out loud comedy of class and cover-ups in one of his most celebrated comedies. Four couples are invited to the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to attend a party celebrating their wedding anniversary. The party never gets started as the guests soon discover that the staff and hostess are missing and the host has shot himself in the earlobe. Comic complications arise when his lawyer's cover-up attempt gets progressively more difficult to sustain as the other guests arrive and no one can remember who has been told what about whom.  In true farcical fashion, doors slam and hilarity abounds as the couples get increasingly crazed in an effort to conceal the evening's events from the local media and police. Rated PG

2PM & 7:30PM
