The Chesil Theatre, Winchester, is delighted to present Neil Simon’s witty and hilarious farce, Rumours, as their November production
Glenn and Cassie arrive at the stylish home of Charlie, a Permanent Under Secretary at the Treasury, and his wealthy wife, Vivian, who are holding a party to celebrate their anniversary. But where are they? There have been rumours at the tennis club about an affair. Would that explain the gunshot?
At all costs a scandal must be prevented. The attempts get more frantic and manic with the arrival of other well-heeled guests, all of whom have positions to maintain in society.
So the excuses, deceptions, confusion and outright lies begin for they must stop the rumour that he has tried to commit suicide.
