Rosalynne Buchanan and Graham Harris are two Hollywood legends whose dynamic on-screen chemistry sparked an off-screen affair lasting 25 years. In 1968, a few weeks after completing their latest film together, Graham dies in the early hours of the morning in the house they both share. Rosalynne (Ross) has no choice but to inform Graham’s wife Leslie of his death. What happens when Ross and Leslie 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.

Lord, what a lot of fun! An actor's (and especially, mature actresses') dream, with snappy, witty dialogue that flies off the tongue as one can't help but read out loud, with feeling. A picture perfect snapshot of Hollywood stars, morals, roles played, lies told, and truths hidden. Crisp, witty, loving, I shall forever be searching for audition notices for this one. Bravo! ”
