Co-written with Gary Lyons, from an idea by Gary Lyons*
Rosalynne (Ross) Buchanan and Graham (Gray) Harris are Hollywood legends whose dynamic on-screen chemistry sparked an off-screen affair lasting 25 years. When Gray dies a few weeks after completing their latest film together, Ross has no choice but to inform his wife Lesley. What happens when Ross and Lesley meet for the first time is the premise of Just A Rumor, a play that explores the nature of love, celebrity, gossip, truth, and how to get a dead movie star out of the kitchen.
"I give Doug DeVita’s plays a solid F: Fiercely intelligent; Ferociously funny; Fully human. In fact, a Feast."
– Steven Hauck | Actor / The Fierce Urgency Of Now, Just A Rumor
