ARTfactory Rooftop Productions will present one of the most popular plays by comic playwright Neil Simon. Rumors will be performed in the Wind River Theater at the ARTfactory starting June 14 and running through June 23.

The hilarious comedy takes place during an elegant anniversary dinner party hosted by New York’s Deputy Mayor, Charlie Brock. When Charlie is found injured from a gunshot wound, his wife Myra is nowhere to be found. What ensues is a chain of mistaken identities, cover-ups, and outrageous rumors all with Simon’s signature wit and comedic timing culminating in a riotous whirlwind of laughter and mayhem.


Director Charlynn Mills describes Neil Simon as one of the most prolific and popular playwrights of the modern era, considered the master of comic dialogue: “Rumors is a prime example of his best work. This play is designed to be a lighthearted two-hour experience that will lift your spirits. So, leave your worries at the door and let Neil Simon’s writing and our cast entertain you.”

The cast includes Kellie Honey as Chris Gorman, Cameron McBride as Ken Gorman, Pam Gordet as Claire Ganz, Kieran Cross as Lenny Ganz, Bob Thompson as Ernie Cusack, Deb Hansen as Cookie Cusack, David Moore as Glenn Cooper, Eileen Marshall as Cassie Cooper, Meighan Hogate III as Officer Welch, and Jeremy Spittle as Officer Pudney.
