BPCC Theatre Presents Neil Simon's 'Rumors'

April 12, 2018

The Bossier Parish Community College Theatre Program and the Cavalier Players announce the next show in their season, Rumors. This hilarious farce is written by Neil Simon, the Tony-award winning American playwright who has brought us such comedy hits as Barefoot in the Park, Lost in Yonkers, and Brighton Beach Memoirs—only to name a few.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m., April 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 and 2:00 p.m., April 15 and 22 in the Stephen W. Slaughter Theatre in Building C on the BPCC campus, 6220 East Texas Street, Bossier City, LA.

Synopsis: In Rumors, at a large, tastefully appointed Sneden's Landing townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Despite the deputy mayor receiving only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken and wife Chris must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusions and miscommunications mount, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
