Rumors

May 6th-15th

2005

Set in present day New York City at the home of Charlie Brock, the deputy mayor of New York. He and his wife Myra are having a dinner party to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. They have invited eight of their closest friends to share in the celebrations. Ken and Chris Gorman, the first couple to arrive discover that Charlie has been injured, but is still alive. Myra is gone, and all the servants are missing. No party preparations have been made. Other guests will soon be arriving, so the Gormans must fabricate a story to explain the missing wife and servants and the injured host. They unsuccessfully try to hide the truth from the second couple, who then try to hide it from the third couple and so on, until eventually the police arrive and the bickering eightsome have to present a united front to save their own skins. Doors slam and hilarity abounds as the couples get more and more crazed trying to sort things out. Rumors debuted on Broadway in 1988.
