By Neil Simon

Rumors is a hilarious farce set at a Sneden’s Landing, New York townhouse.  Four couples gather for a friend’s 10th wedding anniversary; but the wife is nowhere to be found, no food has been prepared, and the husband has been shot, in the ear.  As confusion and mis-communications mount, the evening becomes even more absurd.  We hope you join us to find out what really happened.  Rated PG – please, no persons under the age of 10
