ITT presents Rumors: a witty farce comedy by American playwright Neil Simon at Dongrami Theater in Ulsan on December 5-6, 2015.
Arriving to the sound of an “enormous thud,” Ken and Chris suddenly find themselves in the troublesome position of being part of an elaborate cover up of attempted suicide. As the couple fears for the reputation of their dear friend, Deputy Mayor Charley Brock, the two lawyers inadvertently prepare for the arrival of Charley’s VIP guests at his anniversary dinner. With the hosts amiss, the servants unaccounted for and rumors flying, suspicions quickly escalate to unravel these esteemed members of society; revealing their true moral and embarrassing quirks.
Rumors, premiered at The Old Globe Theatre (San Diego, California), on September 22, 1988 and have since been produced by numerous theatre companies. Its timeless humor has been described as, “Light, frothy and fun” by the New York Post; as well as “Not only side splitting, but front and back spitting” -NBC-TV.
Aimed at taking away those winter blues, ITT’s production of Rumors promises to be uniquely entertaining with its diverse cast, each adding their own spin to these upper class New York characters. Members including: Annabelle Owens, Hagan Matthew, Holly Ive, John William Mains-Sheard, Kelsey Sprague, Michael Uchrin, Natasha Moodaley, Patrick Robbins, Patrick Sanders, and Susie Lopez.
