Dinner Theatre

October 6, 2018
Featured Performance: Rumors
A madcap, slamming door farce by Neil Simon.  The Depty Mayor of New York has just shot himself.  Through 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 mis-communications mount, the evening spins off into classic and farcical hilarity.  As more guests arrive, there are cover-ups, deceptions, mistaken identities, and a lot of huge laughs.  Adult language.
