The Manchester Players will be reading Neil Simon’s play, Rumors,’ on Sunday, June 3, at 4 p.m. Presented in honor of , proceeds from tickets, $10, will be donated to Every town for Gun Violence, a nonprofit organization which advocates against gun violence.
‘Rumors’ is an hysterically funny play about nothing but making the audience laugh, when four couples gather together and experience an attack of farce. The play starts with the celebration of a tenth wedding anniversary. Charlie and Myra have invited all their good friends to their home for a party. They show up to find that Myra is missing, the kitchen staff is gone and that Charley has ‘accidentally’ shot himself in the ear. He is unconscious and unable to tell them what happened, and everyone goes about covering up what they assume to be the truth until all are complicit in a cover-up that no one even understands. The reading will take place at the Wiburton Inn in Manchester, and will feature local professional actors Letitia Scordino, Rose Marie Perfect and David Alastair Lewis, to name a few.
