Rumors - American Edition


Neil Simon

Published by Samuel French Inc

5 Male 5 Female

Four couples are at the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary

The party never begins because the host has shot himself in the head (it's only a flesh wound) and his wife is missing

His lawyer's cover up, gets progressively more difficult to sustain as the other guests arrive and nobody can remember who has been told what about whom

Doors slam and hilarity abounds as the couples get more and more crazed

"Light, frothy and fun" ~ N.Y. Post

"Has nothing on its mind except making the audience laugh" ~ N.Y. Times

"Neil Simon makes people laugh a lot!" ~ USA Today

"Not only side splitting, but front and back splitting" ~ NBC TV
