This was ordered for a LAMDA Acting exam. It arrived swiftly and in excellent condition. The play really is a farce and is comical. The story develops nicely and leaves you on a cliffhanger. Some good monologues for men in here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hilarious and well written 18 mars 2001
Par Tom Reinstein - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Comedy is difficult to write, especially a play. Comedic plays (especially farces) must move quickly, or the audience is lost. Humor can get very stale if the situations do not change dramatically. Neil Simon said that Rumors was the hardest play he had to write because every line had to further the plot. I had the privilege of acting in this play, and I say with all sincerity that there is never a dull moment in this play. It is hilarious, with absolutely no redeeming social value. In an age where plays and movies must either be stupid comedies with outlandish plot twists and completely unbelievable characters or have dark humor with a depressing hidden message, it is nice to see a well written, straight forward farce where the jokes never get old, no matter how many times you see it and it is very easy to lose yourself completely when either watching it or acting in it. In Rumors, Neil Simon has written a gem of a play.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Modern Farce. 8 septembre 2005
Par tvtv3 - Publié sur

RUMORS was first performed in the early days of the 1990s. So much has changed since then. Yet, one of the tests of a classic is it's staying power. Though I wouldn't say that RUMORS is a classical comedy, it is a modern gem that has staying power.

RUMORS was written by Neil Simon. It takes place in upper Manahattan at the home of Charley and Myra Brock. The Brock's are holding a party to celebrate their 10th Wedding Anniversary. However, the first guests to arrive at the home, Ken and Chris Gorman, hear a gun shot. They find Charley upstairs bleeding from the head, Myra and the servants missing, and a bunch of frozen and half-thawed food in the kitchen. Soon after the other couples for the parties begin arriving and the Gormans do everything they can to keep the truth from leaking out until they figure out exactly what has happened.

I've acted in RUMORS twice and have thorougly enjoyed it both times. Performing in a Neil Simon play is always fun. However, the play does have one drawback. In his early days, Simon kept his plays from being too vulgar. However, since the mid 1980s, Simon's plays have become increasingly filled with foul language, making many of his unaltered shows unfit for family audiences. RUMORS was written near the beginning of this pattern, so though it's no ODD COUPLE, it's not as bad as some of his later shows either.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A brilliant fast-paced comedy farce 29 juin 2007
Par Official NetNanuNanu - Publié sur

Rumors is a play that is perfect for the stage. It is filled with quick-wit humor, lively action, entertaining real-life dialogue and the plot construction is brilliant. Most of Simon's plays would make a fun movie with colorful characters, and I don't know if a movie version has ever been done.

Neil Simon is truly one of the funniest playwrights ever. I have not read anyone else who can match his comedic talent for playwriting. It is a style that his clearly his own.

Rumors moves very fast, never a dull moment and is what sticks out for me is the humorous dialogue. It's not one-liners, it's real.

The play takes place in New York in a Victorian house in Sneden's Landing. All characters appear to be financially comfortable. The play consists of about 4-5 couples who enter at different stages.

The story focuses on a couple, Chris and Ken, in their mid-thirties, who arrive at the home of Charley, deputy mayor of New York, and Myra for their 10th anniversary party. Myra is gone, the Chinese maid is gone, the dinner is thawing out on the table, pasta is in the pot with no water and they discover that Charley shot himself in the head but he has only managed to nick his earlobe.

To prevent a scandal, Chris and Ken plot to keep the truth out, rumors of why the attempted suicide begin and the fun starts when the guests start arriving and everyone schemes to cover up the attempted suicide.

This is brilliant comedy.....Rizzo.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I was very entertained with this work. 22 avril 1997

Mr. Neil Simon does a very skillfull job of creating a play that is very amusing but also shows many of the abilities of the human imagination. I love the ending in which there is no end, but you finish the book or walk out of the theater trying to figure out what happened to Charley, Myra, and the servants; just as the guests have been trying all night. Simon makes us a guest and I love it
