Maine Edge reviews SPA production of ‘Rumors’
The Maine Edge reviewed the University of Maine School of Performing Arts’ production of Neil Simon’s farce “Rumors.” Directed by Julie Arnold Lisnet, lecturer of theatre at UMaine and founding member of Ten Bucks Theatre Co., the production is staged in Al Cyrus Pavilion Theatre and will run through Oct. 27. In the play, a group of friends is assembling to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of Charley and Myra Brock — but Charley has been shot in the ear, and Myra and the kitchen staff are nowhere to be found. Ken and Chris try to keep the situation in check, but it quickly unravels as the other guests arrive. “There’s nothing quite like the energy produced by academic theatre; ‘Rumors’ is a wonderful outlet for that energy,” the article states.
