The Chiltern Players
‘Rumours’ a farce by Neil Simon.
The play is being presented over 3 nights, Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th March 2018 at the Peppard Memorial Hall, Gallowstree Road, Peppard Common, RG9 5JA. Doors are open 19.30 for a 20.00 start. Tickets are available at £9.00 each from 0118 972 2632, ‘Occasions’ in Sonning Common, or chiltern.players@yahoo.co.uk  The poster of the event can be found here
A synopsis of the play is as follows:
Three couples, each with problems, arrive at the Home Counties home of their friend Charley, a prominent Government official, for a twentieth wedding anniversary; to find that their host has just shot himself through his ear lobe; and his wife is nowhere in sight. The evening descends into classic farce as confusions and mis-communications mount.
