In 1988, Neil Simon needed to cheer himself up. The solution was a farce in two acts.

Lawyer Ken Gorman and his wife, Chris, were the first to arrive at the 10th wedding anniversary party for Deputy Mayor of New York Charley Brock and his wife, Myra. Unfortunately, things are not going quite to plan. All the kitchen staff is gone, Myra is missing, and Charley has shot himself in the head.

With laughs galore, “Rumors” is Neil Simon at his comedic best.
