Theatre Northwest: "Rumors"

Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts, Studio Theatre

Friday, November 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Theatre Northwest’s season theme of ‘Identity’ enters through the back door (and the side door, and the front door, and the basement) into a hilarious farce by Neil Simon, leaving the audience unsure just who is telling the truth, and in some cases, literally who is who!

As the story begins, the Deputy Mayor has shot himself. Though his injuries are nowhere near fatal, his lawyer struggles to keep “the story” straight as the other couples arrive to the dinner party and their host lies bleeding in the other room. Complications arise as guests enter with their own ridiculous personal issues, and worst of all, the police show up. Will they pull it off? Hijinks, mistaken identities, shenanigans, and yes, rumors ensue! New York Post's Clive Barnes, who opened his review with "Broadway has something to cheer about again!" went on to praise Simon's farce for being "light, frothy and fun. It is as significant as a cream puff and just about as nourishing. But beautifully baked and cunningly filled."

“Rumors” will be held in the Studio Theater in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts November 9-11 at 7:30 p.m., and November 12 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased ahead of time by phone at 660-562-1321 or at the box office up to one hour before showtime.
