Pattaya Players to spread farcical “Rumors”


Pattaya Players is proud to announce that tickets are now on sale for its full length, comical masterpiece, “Rumors” by Neil Simon.  This production will run for two nights only on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11.  Directed by Pattaya Players President Christopher Parsons, this show boasts a two storey set and a 250 person auditorium with state-of-the-art lighting and sound system.

In New York’s Sneden’s Landing, four couples of high society gather for a rendezvous and face increasingly unusual and hilarious circumstances.  The story begins with the Deputy Mayor of New York having shot himself in the ear while hosting a dinner party in which his wife has gone missing.  The situation is exacerbated as events become ever more chaotic, and the affluent and image-conscious guests attempt to cover things up from the police and everyone else.

“Rumors,” one of Neil Simon’s countless masterpieces, was originally released in 1988 to critical acclaim.  The Pattaya Players adaptation, showing in The Eastern Grand Palace Rattanakosin Ballroom, is the second Simon play to be put on by this troupe – the first being “The Odd Couple (Female Version)” which played to sold-out audiences and rave reviews just two short years ago.  “Rumors” features a talented ensemble cast, including Cailin Terhaar, Doug Heron, Wendy Khan, Chris Harman, Clare Bryant, Duane Hauch, Foo Smith, Bob Smith, Eileen Denning and Sue Farrell.

Show times are at 7:00 p.m. (with dinner beginning at 5:00 p.m.) on Friday and Saturday, June 10-11.  Tickets are 1,000 baht (inclusive of show plus an “all you can eat” buffet dinner at The White Horse Tavern) and can be purchased with a credit card online by visiting or by emailing [email protected]

The Eastern Grand Palace is located on Soi Khao Talo.
