In an interview, Simon said: 'I was going through some difficult times...I wanted to work, because work is always a cathartic process for me, and I thought it would be really good just to get into a comedy.” The result was one of Neil Simon’s funniest
comedies Rumors. "The play started with the idea of doing a farce...The next thing was to do it as an elegant farce, because the farces in Moliere's days were generally about wealthy people. These aren't extremely wealthy people, but they are well-to-do. So I decided to dress them in evening clothes. There was something about having them dressed in evening clothes that I thought was a nice counterpoint to the chaos that was happening in the play. And so I picked a reason for them to be dressed elegantly, and it was a 10th anniversary."
“We are counting on the strong talent and interest in live theater to energize this community once again and make this venture strong enough to warrant a full season of plays at the Sunrise next year,” said the play’s director, Rod Harter. “Loretta Aldridge and Don Bridge are serving as producers for Rumors, and Douglas Fry will be the scenic designer.
