RUMORS synopsis: At a large, tastefully appointed Sneden’s Landing townhome, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four other couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. At a gathering celebration for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the upstairs bedroom, and his wife is nowhere in sight. His lawyer, Ken, and wife, Chris, must get “the story” straight before the other guests arrive. The confusions and miscommunications mount, as the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.
