"Rumors" by Neil Simon
1801 E. Fir St.
MUHS A.T.O.R.T. is proud to announce its second production of the season- Rumors by Neil Simon during the first two weekends in November. Audiences are going love this play... its non-stop laughs from start to finish. Neil Simon sets this up so quickly, gets the comedy going, and then it's madcap laughter all the way through. Rumors centers around four well-to-do couples played by our top-notch actors, who gather in an elegant residence for a dinner party celebrating their hosts' Charlie and Mayra Brock’s anniversary. When they arrive they discover there is no dinner prepared, the hostess is missing, and the host, who is also the deputy mayor of New York City, has been shot. Their decision to conceal everything from the police and the press spins the evening into classic farcical hilarity. Rumors is sheer comic bliss, cunningly structured, with almost mathematical precision and elegance. Just about every farcical trope is visited: doors are slammed, identities are mistaken, and the rich and powerful are mercilessly and hilariously brought down a peg or two.
This hilarious farce is brought to life by Hayden Ledbetter, Hannah Rumpf, Dylan Capello, Audrey Tollison, Hannah Detwiler, Jasper Lanning, Matthew Leman, Mariah Jones, Chris Baum, and Tera Quigley. Direction is taken up by Jessica Jaramillo and assistant director, producer and designer is James Ball.
