Neil Simon’s “Rumors”

Crowded Kitchen Players’ presents
Neil Simon’s brilliant farce

Running October 1st through Oct 17 (see below for showtimes)

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” —Sir Walter Scott

What could possibly be wrong with spreading a few false rumors, just to cover up some messy business for a couple of close friends?


  • Four couples are invited to the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary.
  • The party never actually gets off the ground because the host has inexplicably shot himself in the earlobe and his wife is nowhere to be found.
  • As his lawyer’s ludicrous attempt at a cover up becomes progressively more difficult to sustain, and the other guests arrive and notice the absence of their hosts and any domestic help, nobody can seem to keep straight exactly who has been told what about whom.


  • The Crowded Kitchen Player Cast: Rebecca Burroughs, Joe Bobinis, David Oswald, Nancy Mikkelsen, Sharon Ferry, Jack McGavin, Elizabeth Buss, Will Alexander, Pamela Wallace, and a mystery guest actor.
