The Industrial Theater Troupe Presents “Rumors” by Neil Simon December 5-6

A group of high class society members hysterically try to cover up an attempted suicide at the deputy mayor’s anniversary dinner.

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.
