About Rumors

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though 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 miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

“Has nothing on its mind except making the audience laugh.”

New York Times

“Light, frothy and fun.” 

New York Post

“Not only side splitting, but front and back splitting.”


“Rumors” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
