It is farce time once again at Sudbury’s Quay Theatre when Sudbury Dramatic Society presents Neil Simon’s comedy play Rumours.

When Ken and Chris, Len and Claire, Ernest and Cookie and Glenn ad Cassie arrive at a wedding anniversary party they discover that although the food is laid out in the kitchen all ready to cook there are no staff.

The hostess is also missing and the host has a bullet wound to his ear lobe and is too dazed to speak.

To add to the mayhem, Len and Claire have just been injured in a car crash and each of the four couples bring their own problems with them.

With their host being a prominent Government official, and the guests all needing to protect their own social standing and careers, the need to avoid any breath of scandal is paramount.

When a second gunshot means that the police arrive, Len has to pretend he is the host with a funny, touching and dramatic explanation.

Rumours, the British version, is on at The Quay Theatre from Tuesday, November 3, until Saturday, November 7, starting at 7.45pm.

The final SDS Gala Evening of 2015 takes place on Wednesday, November 4, at 7.45pm offering audiences the chance to dress up and enjoy canapés served during the play’s interval.

Tickets are on sale from the Box Office on 01787 374745 or online at www.quaytheatre.org.uk.
