PLYMOUTH — The Department of Music, Theatre and Dance at Plymouth State University presents Neil Simon's Rumors, "a farce of the highest and most hilarious order," from Wednesday through Friday, April 22–24 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, April 25 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m in the studio theatre at the Silver Center for the Arts.
The deputy mayor of New York just shot himself, his wife is nowhere to be found, and eight dinner guests are about to experience a severe attack of farce. Hilarious complications ensue as the guests arrive to celebrate the couple's 10th wedding anniversary. An evening of damage control leads to mounting dilemmas and increasing laughs.
When Rumors arrived on Broadway, New York Post critic Clive Barnes exclaimed, "Broadway has something to cheer about again!" Barnes said the play was "... as significant as a cream puff and just about as nourishing, but beautifully baked and cunningly filled."
Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors and youth at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also online at Silver.plymouth.edu.
