Devonport This Weekend

Music & Entertainment

Neil Simon’s Rumours

As guests arrive at the 10th wedding-anniversary party of the deputy mayor of New York, they aren’t welcomed with food and drink but a sticky scenario – the host has shot himself in the earlobe, the kitchen staff are nowhere to be found, and his wife is missing.
