One thing that always fills me with giddy joy is being a part of a play! Theatre is quite literally in my blood (My mum and dad met when they were doing a play together!) and it’s always been something that’s powered my creativity. I’ve learnt things like teamwork, communication skills, time management, organisation skills since doing theatre when I was in my first standard!!
Once again I’m a part of this super funny play called ‘Rumors’ (By Neil Simon) Neil Simon is known for his impeccable wit and stagecraft so naturally putting this play together has been one of the best parts of my year so far! I play a small role in this play but the entire cast is brilliant. Come watch Rumors and I guarantee that you’ll get an awesome ab workout in because of all the laughing!
A bit of a teaser 😉
More about the play –
Rumors by Neil Simon opens this Thursday 15th Sept and runs till Saturday 17th Sept at the Junction (Alserkal Avenue)
So what’s the play about?!:
Charley and Myra Brock are celebrating their 10th anniversary and have invited all their good friends. Chris and Ken Gorman, a legal couple, are the first ones to arrive. They show up only to find that Myra is missing and Charley has “accidentally” shot himself in the ear. Charley is unconscious and so unable to tell them what happened. Charley is the deputy Mayor of New York City and, hoping to avoid a scandal, Ken and Chris go about covering up what they assume to be the truth of the situation. As the rest of the guests arrive — Claire and Len Ganz, Ernie and Cookie Cusack, and Cassie and Glenn Cooper — the story of Charley and Myra’s anniversary evening gone awry grows and develops. In the end all the guests are complicit in a cover-up that no one even really understands, but the fantastical events of the evening are hilarious and give a rich basis for great characters doing what Neil Simon does best – making the mundane…insane!
