presenting the inaugural play in Naatak’s 25th Season


written by Neil Simon, directed by Harish Agastya

RUMORS is considered the funniest farce written by Neil Simon. A celebrity couple have invited their friends to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, but as guests arrive they discover that the husband has shot himself through the ear, the wife is missing, and the servants have left without preparing dinner. To protect the hosts from rumor mills, the friends attempt to cover up the whole episode – from the outside world and from each other – setting off a spiraling web of secrets, lies and misunderstandings, and a crazy night of classic slamming-door farcical hilarity.

Run-time: 2 hours
