Battle lines are being drawn at the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility. The prize? A sunny room on an upper floor that is prime real estate. Cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, a fiercely cheerful new roomie who wants the bed next to the window. Not willing to give up her spot, Abby decides she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. To settle the score, a seemingly harmless bet between the women not only reveals the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but quickly escalates into an outrageous game of one-upmanship. Called “an expertly engineered comedy” by The New York Times, Ripcord is The Odd Couple meets The Golden Girls in this over-the-top story from David Lindsay-Abaire (Pulitzer Prize winning author of Rabbit Hole, Fuddy Meers, and Good People).
“A show to treasure. David Lindsay-Abaire’s ripping RIPCORD is a deeply satisfying and vastly entertaining story of two women thrown together by a comic cosmic force possessed of a wicked sense of humor...” Deadline
