Neil Simon's Rumors onstage in New Westminster

Needing some laughter in your life? Vagabond Players are here to help.
Comedy Tragedy Masks
Vagabond Players return to the stage with Neil Simon's Rumors, onstage Feb. 2 to 25 at the Bernie Legge Theatre in New West.

A popular Neil Simon farce is the next outing for New Westminster’s Vagabond Players.

The theatre company brings Rumors to the stage at Bernie Legge Theatre from Feb. 2 to 25.

Kayt Roth directs the new production of the classic comedy that premiered in 1988.

It follows the increasingly chaotic events of what happens at the Sneden’s Landing townhome belonging to the deputy mayor of New York, when four couples gather to celebrate Charley and Myra’s 10th anniversary.

The problem? The host has just shot himself, and his wife is nowhere in sight. Since it’s only a flesh wound, his lawyer and his wife must get the story straight before the other guests arrive.

Confusion and miscommunication mount as the evening descends into farce.

The show features David Wallace as Ken Gorman, Lisa Teskey as Chris Gorman, Ken Boyd as Lenny Ganz, Monika Curman as Claire Ganz, Devan Vanise as Ernie Cusack, Michelle Stanley as Cookie Cusack, Mark MacDonald as Glenn Cooper, Celeste Musseau as Cassie Cooper, Chuck Mayne as Officer Welch and Joana Berg as Officer Pudney.

Shows are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Book online or call 604-521-0412.

Bernie Legge Theatre is in Queen’s Park (near the Sportsplex).
