REGIONAL PREMIERE COMEDY

Ripcord

by David Lindsay-Abaire

January 19–February 16, 2019

A deliciously inappropriate comedy of daring one-upmanship!

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate at Bristol Senior Living Facility, so when cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with happy-go-lucky Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman … by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet quickly escalates into a high-flying, dangerous game. This soaring new comedy tugs at our heartstrings as the women discover what is truly worth fighting for.
