Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.

At a large, tastefully-appointed Sneden’s Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though it’s only a flesh wound, Charlie Brock’s self-inflicted injury sets off a series of events causing four couples to experience a severe attack of farce.
As their tenth wedding anniversary party commences, Charlie lies bleeding in another room, and his wife Myra is nowhere in sight.
The first guests, lawyer Ken Gorman and his wife Chris, scramble to get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
Adult language and subject matter.
Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
Rumors is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
