The 66th Newry Drama Festival takes place between 16 - 24 March 2018 with seven nights of the best of Irish Drama. 

Tonight it's Rumours by Neil Simon, Bunclody/Kilmyshall Drama Group

“Rumours”, written by Neil Simon. Featuring a slap-stick cast of ten, an upstairs-downstairs set and plenty of action with mishaps, secrets and door slamming- “Rumours” really is a guaranteed laugh a minute.
The play begins at a large, elegant house outside London, where the first guests to arrive at a wedding anniversary party discover that the host (an important sounding Assistant Deputy Minister for Finance) has shot himself in the head, his wife is missing and the servants have done a runner before finishing the dinner preparations.

The host is upstairs and unwilling or unable to explain what happened. They panic and worry what the potential scandal would do their friend’s careers and their own. So as three other couples arrive and eventually the police, the first couple fabricates a classic web of lies that will deepen and become increasingly ludicrous, especially as each couple gets drawn into the truth and join in the ongoing deception. The guests – the host’s lawyer, tax accountant, therapist and fellow politician running for election along with their beautifully gowned wives — just compound the chaos!
