Event Notes


According to Rumour
By Robert Scott

presented by The Laughing Stock Theatre Society

Carter can’t exactly remember what happened last night… Asleep on his sofa after a quiet night of celebrating his recent divorce, alone, or so he thought, Carter is rudely awakened by a phone call from his younger sister to let him know that mother is on the way to visit him and should arrive shortly. To compound the confusion, a woman in his nightshirt suddenly emerges from his bedroom, there’s a loud knock at the front door, something begins to stir behind his sofa, and there is the puzzling matter of a mysterious bag full of money in his fridge… What’s going on? Well, According to Rumour….
