There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned staple comedy to complete a community theatre season. And that staple for the Ajax Community Theatre in April is American playwright Neil Simon.
The late Simon (winner of numerous awards) has written over thirty plays with a good majority of them adapted to film. When I think of Neil Simon, such titles as The Odd Couple, The Sunshine Boys and Brighton Beach Memoirs come to my mind as each of these has been adapted to film from the original Broadway script.
Ajax Community Theatre (ACT) has selected Rumours, one of Simon’s lesser known plays that has not had a film adaptation. This didn't deter award-winning Thea director of the upcoming ACT’s production, Kevin Shaver, from tackling the play.
