The Galleon Theatre Group is proud to present a strictly limited season of 'Rumours' by celebrated American playwright, screenwriter and author Neil Simon this November.

The season will commence on Thursday 19th November and run till Saturday 28th November 2015.

Staged at the Domain Theatre, Marion Cultural Centre, 'Rumours' is a riotously funny farce, which centres on the efforts of eight party guests to spare their unfortunate host, and themselves, from scandal.


It opens with Ken and Chris who have found their host Charley, a prominent Government official, in his bedroom, too dazed to speak, with a bullet wound in his ear lobe! His wife, Vivian, and the domestic help are nowhere to be seen.

Len and Claire arrive, themselves injured in a car crash, and are soon joined by Ernest and Cookie and Glenn and Cassie, each with their own problems.

Following a second, accidental, gunshot that leaves Ken temporarily deaf, the police arrive. Len, drawing the short straw, pretends he is Charley and concocts a touching and fantastic explanation.


The play takes place in the living-room of a large house outside London on an evening in May.

The production is directed by Kym Clayton and stars Peter Davies, Anita Canala, Andrew Clark, Linda Lawson, David Lockwood, Lindy le Cornu, John Koch, Leanne Robinson, Andy Linwood and Ashleigh Merriel.
