Rumours by Neil Simon

Audition Date: Wednesday 9 August 2017 - 7.30pm
Venue: Seaford Little Theatre
Production dates: 10 - 18 November 2017

Director: Margaret Kennedy

It is Charley & Viv's 10th Wedding Anniversary so they are hosting a party for their friends. On arrival  Ken & Chris have found Charley, a prominent Government official, in the bedroom, too dazed to speak with a bullet wound in his ear lobe, and a missing Viv.
Next to arrive are Len & Claire, themselves injured in a car crash, soon followed by Ernest & Cookie, and Glenn & Cassie, each with their own problems. A second accidental gunshot leaves Ken temporarily deafened. The police arrive and Len has to pretend to be Charley, concocting a touching and fantastic explanation.



CAST OF CHARACTERS
KEN BEVANS

Charley's lawyer, flushed and excited

CHRIS EVANS Ken's nervous wife, also a lawyer
LEONARD CUMMINGS Charley`s accountant

EARNEST CUSACK A psychiatrist
COOKIE CUSACK A TV cook

It is essential that whoever auditions for Cookie is able to get down on all fours and crawl out to the kitchen – I will endeavour to make it as short a route as possible!!

Rehearsals will start on Monday September 4th. Once books are down, round about early October, I will expect every cast member to attend every rehearsal as this requires the pace and timing that Funny Money had.

Scripts are available from the the theatre (Coffee lounge). Please read, copy any passages you require and return so that other people can access a script.
