Neil Simon’s 1988 farce begins with a suicide attempt from a New York deputy mayor, Charlie, on the night of Charlie and his wife Myra’s 10th wedding anniversary party. As the clueless but well-to-do guests – lawyers, an accountant, psychiatrist, cooking-show host and a man running for the U.S. Senate – begin to arrive two by two to find Myra missing and Charlie alive but incoherent and sporting a flesh wound, they launch into full cover-up mode. But guessing at what happened based only on spurious claims, outright gossip and rumors leads only to a classic comedy of miscommunication, as they attempt to hide their versions of the truth not only from the outside world and police, but each other. Rumors continues through October 14. [Organizer's description:] In Neil Simon's murderous, door-slamming farce, four couples arrive at the well- appointed townhome of New York’s Deputy mayor and his wife, for their 10th anniversary party. The first couple to arrive finds the mayor wounded and the wife and servants missing. As more guests arrive, there are cover-ups, deceptions and, of course, rumors, as the evening spins off into comic mayhem. Written by: Neil Simon Directed by: Christina Keefe Show Dates: October 5-7 and 12-14th at 8:00 pm Location: Hamman Hall Ticket info: 713-348-4005
