Ripcord

by David Lindsay-Abaire
October 25 – November 17
Directed by Cassandra Hesseltine


A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly quirky bet between the old women quickly escalates into a precarious game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.
“A show to treasure…a deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining story …that gradually builds from belly laughs to something more emotionally nutritious.” —Deadline
