Quick As A Wink Theatre took on Neil Simon's Rumors to kick-start their first play of their 10th season.

Hilarity and rumours ensue as party guests arrive to find one host missing, the other suffering from a gunshot wound.

Acting in the farce are Brenda Brown (Cookie Cusack), Mike Butler (Lenny Ganz), Brian Cottam (Ken Gorman), Karen Court (Officer Connie Pudney), Brenda Ellis (Chris Gorman), Andrew Harvie (Ernie Cusack), Lisa Lee (Cassie Cooper), Linda Levy-Fisk (Claire Ganz), Sindy Strong (Officer Jenn Walsh), and Alan Tupper (Glenn Cooper).

Pat Court-Gysi took on the role of the stage manager and Junie Hutchinson took directing duties.

There are still two chances left to take in the adult comedy: March 23 and 24. 

 

 

Show time is 7:30 p.m. at the Fountain Performing Arts Centre, located on the King’s-Edgehill School property. The cost per ticket is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors, students and QAAW members. The show is not intended for young children as it contains adult language and situations.
