Rumour has it

Atelier theatre group presents Khusar Phusar a Hindi adaptation of Neil Simon's Rumors. The Play will be performed on January 3 and 4 at Kamani auditorium at the Capital's Copernicus marg. The play starts with several affluent couples gathering in the posh suburban residence of a couple for a dinner party celebrating their hosts' first anniversary. When they arrive, they discover there are no servants, the hostess is missing, and the host – resident from the posh colony of South Delhi - has shot himself through the earlobe. Comic complications arise when, given everyone's upper class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the evening's events from the local police and the media.
