Furman Theatre Stages “Rumors” by Neil Simon

Furman University Theatre will present “Rumors” by Neil Simon, February 17-20 and 25-27 at 8 p.m., with matinee showings February 21 and 28 at 3 p.m. All performances take place in The Playhouse on campus. In this classic comedy, four couples find themselves at the townhouse of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife to celebrate their wedding anniversary. The party never begins because the host shoots 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. Visiting professor and Furman alumna Carol Sutton directs.
